Elite Roofing Supply announced the opening of its 20th branch, located in Lafayette, La. The new location features 6.5 acres and a fleet of one semi-tractor, one flatbed, one mounted lift, two yard lifts and one trailer.

The branch will be led by Jason Hebert, who joins Elite Roofing Supply with more than 16 years of distribution experience as well as sales and branch management expertise. As a new Elite Managing Partner, Hebert looks forward to combining his sales and management experience to ensure the Lafayette branch is set up for success. He joins Dina Matter, inside sales, and Shawn Hollier in the branch.

“All three of us are native to Lafayette and have strong roots in the community," Hebert said. "With Dina’s 17 years and Shawn’s 15 years of industry experience, our team possesses the skills necessary to provide customers with a truly Elite experience."

Doug Norman, regional vice president of Elite Louisiana, said the company is excited to expand its footprint in the Southeast by adding a fifth branch to the region.

"Together, our four branches in Louisiana, as well as our store in Beaumont, Texas, will be able to expand our service platform so Elite can offer a personalized contractor experience to as many customers as possible," Norman said. "I have no doubt Jason is the leader this branch needs to succeed.”

The new Lafayette branch is located at 308 Galbert Road, Lafayette, La. 70506, and can be reached at 337-345-4380.
