Beacon Roofing Supply, Inc. is one of the largest distributors of residential and non-residential roofing and complementary building products in North America. We currently consist of 13 regional companies in 38 states and 6 Canadian Provinces with 229 locations and more than 2,800 employees. We are known throughout the building supply industry for having quality people, quality service and quality building products.

Beacon’s mission is to be the leading North American supplier to commercial and residential roofing and exterior building contractors through a family of long-established regional suppliers and to add value to our contractor customers' businesses, to our employees' careers, to our investors' assets, and to our suppliers' products.

Our local branches stock a comprehensive product line that caters to their markets. In addition to roofing, local product offerings can include windows, siding, decking, waterproofing and many other external building products. Our status as a leader in our industry allows us to develop strong partnerships with leading brand manufacturers and to stock an unmatched supply of the professional components necessary for the quality, timely completion of our contractor-customers projects.

We provide our customers with a comprehensive array of value-added services which distinguish us from our competition. We have earned a reputation for excellent employees, professionalism and high-quality service. We believe that quality service does not end with the delivery of materials – it ends with the successful completion of the project. As a result, “partnerships” are formed between Beacon branches and our customers that go beyond the industry norm.

Beacon has grown by expanding its existing regions and by making strategic acquisitions. Our business is well-balanced between new and re-roof applications in both residential and commercial markets. A highly scalable platform, a proven business model, results-oriented management and a strong people-focused corporate culture give us a solid foundation for continued growth.
