Beacon has opened new locations in Fort Myers, Fla., Milton, Fla., and Saginaw, Mich., to serve both residential and commercial roofing contractors.

The branch in Fort Myers, Fla., will be on the south side of the city and is the third Beacon branch in the Cape Coral-Fort Myers metro.

“We are pleased to now have three branches serving the Cape Coral-Fort Myers metro area, including a location specializing in waterproofing products,” Jack Gill, Beacon’s regional vice president of Florida, said. “This is a fast-growing market that also requires resilient weather solutions due to its coastal location. We have what builders need from the roof to underground protection.”

The Milton, Fla., branch will serve residential and commercial customers in the Pensacola metro area.

“The beautiful Gulf coast and Naval base makes this an attractive area and we see the growth in requirements for building materials,” Lynn France, Beacon’s regional vice president of the southeast, said. “Contractors will appreciate Beacon’s customer service and product range to help them grow their businesses.”

The new Michigan branch is the 12th total location in the state for Beacon.

“We are pleased to begin serving roofing contractors in the Saginaw area,” Jason Martin, regional vice president in the Great Lakes, said. “Our product range and the opportunity to use Beacon PRO+, our industry-leading app, will help busy customers who are on the go.”

In addition to the greenfield openings, Beacon has completed two acquisitions in the first three months of 2024. Footprint expansion remains an important part of the distributor’s Ambition 2025 plan.
