Beacon Roofing Supply today announced the acquisition of Wholesale Roofing Supply, a residential roofing distributor based in Dallas.
The newly-acquired company is expected to reach approximately $34 million total sales in 2014, which would have placed it on the 2014 ProSales 100 list. For reference, Beacon Roofing Supply ranked third on that list.
Rick McLaughlin, Wholesale Roofing Supply's president, will continue to lead that company for Beacon. "The entire WRS team is excited to join Beacon, which has a strong, long-standing presence and excellent reputation in the Dallas/Ft. Worth market," said McLaughlin. "Being part of Beacon will allow WRS to bring our customers new product offerings and enable our employees to share in Beacon's continuing growth and success. The Potter family over the last 59 years has built a great company, and I want to thank them both for their years of support and for deciding to partner with Beacon to help secure WRS's future."
"WRS will be a great addition to our existing Dallas/Ft. Worth branches," said Paul Isabella, Beacon's CEO and president. "It greatly broadens our footprint in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area and enables us to even better and more quickly serve the surrounding area customer base. Rick McLaughlin and his team will be a great addition to our Company and I am thrilled to welcome them to Beacon."
