This week, Beacon Building Products announced the opening of two greenfield locations that will serve residential and commercial roofing contractors in Texas and Mississippi.

The new Texas branch is located in Longview, Texas, which will service the east Texas market supporting Gregg County customers. 

“We are pleased to expand Beacon’s footprint in this growing corridor where Interstate 20 and U.S. highways 80 and 259 converge,” said Peter Lippert, Beacon’s regional vice president, Texas. 

This is Beacon’s fourth new branch nationwide. In addition to this location, Beacon announced that it has opened a greenfield location in Gulfport, Miss. The Gulfport location services Gulfport, Biloxi and surrounding metropolitan area customers. 

“This new branch is stocked with leading brands of residential and commercial roofing and complementary products, including Beacon’s own TRI-BUILT® products," said Lynn France, Beacon’s regional vice president, Southeast.  

In addition to the new locations, Beacon reminded its customers on the go can use the Beacon PRO+ mobile app to save time and track deliveries.

The Gulfport location is Beacon’s fifth greenfield opening in 2023. The company anticipates at least 15 by the end of the year. In a statement, the roofing distributor said expanding its ability to serve customers through opening greenfield locations in growing areas is an "example of the significant progress Beacon has made toward achieving growth above market and excellence in customer experience as laid out in our Ambition 2025 strategy."
