Beacon Roofing Supply has acquired Stamford, Connecticut-based Eco Insulation Supply, a distributor of insulation and related accessories serving Connecticut, Southern New England and the New York City metropolitan area.
The move will broaden the geographical reach of Beacon’s existing insulation business that grew significantly with Beacon’s acquisition of Roofing & Insulation Supply in December 2015.
EIS President Kevin Brown, who will remain with the company, stated, "Joining forces with Beacon presents a unique opportunity for EIS to grow and better serve our customers. I selected Beacon because it presents the best avenues for advancement for EIS’s employees. Beacon’s commitment to its insulation business, along with Beacon’s size and relationships with the major insulation manufacturers, will open new doors for EIS and provide growth opportunities that we could not achieve independently. This is an exciting day for EIS and all of our employees.”
Paul Isabella, Beacon’s CEO and president, emphasized the strategic fit of the acquisition and the compatibility of the two companies, stating, "We are very excited that EIS has joined the Beacon family. EIS’s strong reputation with contractors in its markets will provide an excellent complement to Beacon’s insulation footprint, which we are committed to growing both through additional acquisitions of great companies like EIS and through strategic greenfield openings. I welcome Kevin Brown and all of EIS’s experienced employees and know that they will be great additions to Beacon.”
