Beacon announced that it has opened new locations in Dieppe, New Brunswick, Canada and Spring Lake Park, Minn. to serve residential and commercial roofing contractors in the northern U.S. and southeastern Canada.

The new branch in Dieppe, New Brunswick will serve the Atlantic Canada region. Charles Michaud, Beacon’s regional vice president, Canada, said this is the seventh Canadian province in which Beacon has established a presence.

"Construction is on an upswing in this market due to population growth and our branch is well positioned to provide a strong catalog of both residential and commercial roofing products," said Michaud. "Contractors will appreciate our team’s knowledge and service commitment to help them grow their businesses."

The new branch in Spring Lake Park, Minn. adds residential and commercial roofing and complementary products and services in the north Minneapolis metro market. 

“We are seeing construction trends in this attractive area that require the building materials and services that are our specialty. Contractors will appreciate our commitment to customer success, including the industry-leading Beacon PRO+ app for online ordering and delivery tracking,” said Brett Kinning, Beacon’s regional vice president, Northern Plains.

Beacon has opened five new locations, completed two acquisitions adding seven branches, and signed a purchase agreement for a third acquisition to date in 2024. Beacon notes that footprint expansion is "an important element of our Ambition 2025 plan."

"We continue to deliver on our commitments to drive above-market growth to better serve customers," the company said in a news release.

The company reports it exceeded its Ambition 2025 revenue and shareholder return targets two years early and is advancing on achievement of its full plan.
