Beacon opened a new greenfield location in Rockford, Ill. The branch establishes service to customers in the growing Rockford metro and adds a 14th Illinois branch to the Beacon portfolio.

“Our team is pleased to expand service to customers in Illinois,” Larry Augello, Beacon’s regional vice president of the north central region, said in a prepared statement. “We have a complete Beacon OTC network of branches in the Chicago metro area and this extension to reach Rockford allows us to meet the needs of local Rockford customers as well as those who work in the adjacent corridors. We also look forward to being active in the community via the Chamber of Commerce and Toys for Tots.”

According to Beacon, the Rockford branch will be stocked with leading brands of residential roofing, commercial roofing, and complementary products, including Beacon’s TRI-BUILT brand. Contractors in Rockford have immediate access to Beacon PRO+. available in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Beacon said the Rockford location demonstrates the company’s commitment to customer excellence and growth in its Ambition 2025 goals.

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.
