Beacon announced it completed the acquisition of Boston-based Whitney Building Products, a distributor of commercial and multifamily waterproofing and restoration products. According to Beacon, Whitney has served the construction and restoration industry in New England since 1946.
“We are thrilled to announce that Whitney is joining Beacon,” Brendan Byrne, president of Whitney, said in a prepared statement. “We believe this next chapter of our history will enable us to continue serving our loyal customers and bring them the benefits of Beacon’s scale, especially given their recent acquisition of Coastal. The trusted relationships we have built will endure and grow as our capabilities expand as part of the Beacon team.”
After the acquisition, Beacon now has over 30 dedicated waterproofing branches across the United States. Martin Harrell, Beacon’s president of the waterproofing division, said the acquisition demonstrates Beacon’s continued “expansion of our footprint consistent with achieving our Ambition 2025 growth targets.”
Herndon, Va.-based Beacon distributes roofing materials and complementary building products. The company operates over 470 branches throughout all 50 U.S. states and six Canadian provinces.
