Beacon opened a new greenfield location in Gulfport, Miss. The new location will service Gulfport, Biloxi, and the surrounding metropolitan area customers, according to the distributor.

“We are pleased to expand Beacon’s footprint in this growing Mississippi Gulf Coast market,” Lynn France, Beacon’s regional vice president of the southeast, said in a prepared statement. “This new branch is stocked with leading brands of residential and commercial roofing and complementary products, including Beacon’s own TRI-BUILT products. In addition, customers on the go across the region can use our mobile app, Beacon PRO+, to save time and track deliveries.”

The greenfield represents the fifth overall branch opening for Beacon in 2023. In April, Beacon opened its third Texas greenfield location in Longview. According to the distributor, the greenfield openings represent “the significant progress Beacon has made toward achieving growth above market and excellence in customer experience” as outlined in the company’s Ambition 2025 strategy.

Herndon, Va.-based Beacon distributes roofing materials and complementary building products. The company operates over 480 branches throughout all 50 U.S. states and six Canadian provinces.
