Beacon announced in a news release that it has opened new locations in Grand Haven, Mich., and Joplin, Mo., to serve residential and commercial contractors and lumberyards.

The new Grand Haven, Mich. branch is in the Grand Rapids metropolitan area on the west side of the state. 

“This location will serve the popular lake-side community as part of our Western Michigan Beacon OTC network. Our product range and digital tools, like Beacon PRO+, make us the supplier of choice for the Grand Rapids area,” said Jake Gosa, Beacon’s president, North Division.

The new Joplin, Mo. branch is situated strategically mid-state, straddling the Kansas and Oklahoma state lines, and is dedicated to serving lumberyard customers. 

“This location’s proximity to Interstates 44 and 49 is ideal for serving our Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma customers. This tri-state area is a busy region and we have customized our product range, trucking routes, and team expertise to deliver industry-leading service for our lumberyard customers,” said Clint Wade, Beacon’s national vice president.

Beacon has opened 16 greenfields and completed seven acquisitions to date in 2023. According to the company, driving "above-market growth via footprint expansion is an important pillar" of its Ambition 2025 plan.
