Beacon has opened new locations in Riverside, Calif., and Houston to serve residential and commercial contractors.

The Riverside branch is located in the Inland Empire region of southern California, one of the “fastest-growing population centers in the U.S.”

“We are pleased to serve contractors from our Riverside, San Bernardino, and Norco branches which operate as a Beacon OTC network,” Nevin Holly, Beacon’s regional vice president of the Pacific, said in a prepared statement. “Customers have access to our full catalog of products and are assured on-time delivery so that they can grow their businesses.”

The Houston branch is located along the 288 corridor between Interstates 69 and 610, south of the city.

“This location adds another lever for us to serve our Houston customers,” Peter Lippert, Beacon’s regional vice president of Texas said in a prepared statement. “The Houston Beacon OTC network is now seven branches strong, allowing us to differentiate on service and product range to make the customer experience second to none.”

Beacon has opened 21 greenfield locations and completed nine acquisitions to date in 2023. The expansion of its footprint is an important element of the distributor’s Ambition 2025 plan.

Herndon, Va.-based Beacon distributes roofing materials and complementary building products. The company operates over 500 branches throughout all 50 U.S. states and six Canadian provinces.
