DALLAS — Roofing Supply Group LLC (RSG) has announced that it has opened a new location in Hawthorne, Calif. This new location, along with existing branches in Santa Ana and City of Industry, will strategically position RSG to better serve the Los Angeles market as a whole.

This location is the 17th branch in the West Region under the direction of Richard Oliva, regional senior vice president.

“Our new branch in Hawthorne greatly expands our footprint in the Los Angeles market,” Oliva said. “By setting up shop in West LA, we have created a triangle around Los Angeles that allows us to service most areas with an RSG branch within 30 to 40 miles. We are pleased to have Frank Paour as our branch manager. He brings 30-plus years of experience in the market and is well respected by customers and manufactures in the LA market.”

Jeff Clay, vice president of strategic planning & corporate development, added, “We are extremely excited about all eight of our openings in 2013. With the addition of our latest Hawthorne location, we have been able to expand in three of our four regions, with four in the Southeast, three in the Rocky Mountain/Midwest and one in the West. We will continue to evaluate our existing markets, as well as those where RSG currently does not have a presence, to more thoroughly examine any growth opportunities that will move our expansion campaign forward.”

The opening of this latest branch in Hawthorne aligns strategically with RSG's overall expansion initiative which includes organic growth, opening of new locations and planned acquisitions.
