Beacon expands in Washington

Beacon Roofing Supply has expanded its presence in the Pacific Northwest with the acquisition of American Building & Roofing, Inc.

The Washington State-based distributor of residential roofing and related building products has been in business for over 30 years and maintains seven branches in the state. ABR has grown from its original store in Everett to seven branches by adding stores in Snohomish, Poulsbo, Pasco, Mt. Vernon, Yakima and Wenatchee.

“Joining Beacon presents a tremendous opportunity for my family and ABR’s loyal customers and employees," said ABR’s founder, David Morgan. "Beacon’s commitment to strengthen its presence in Washington State and the entire Pacific Northwest will enable us to better serve our customers with broader product offerings and even more efficient deliveries. We chose to align with Beacon because Beacon shares our belief that success comes from hard work and great customer service and because Beacon presented the greatest long-term growth opportunities for my family and all of our employees. I am very excited for their future at Beacon.”

"ABR is a tremendous addition to Beacon and significantly expands our residential roofing opportunities in Washington State, particularly in the busy Seattle market," said Paul Isabella, Beacon’s CEO and president. "We are grateful that David, Wendy, Marc and Karren Morgan have entrusted Beacon with the further growth and development of their great company and I am confident that ABR will play a huge role in our success in the Pacific Northwest. We are thrilled to have the entire ABR team as part of Beacon.”

Beacon continues to ride a wave of acquisitions. In May, it acquired Fox Brothers Co, in Lansing, Michigan. April saw the aquisition of Philadelphia area's Atlantic Building Products.
