Beacon announced that it continues to grow in Texas with the opening of greenfield locations in Brownsville and Georgetown.

The roofing and building products distributor now operates 32 branches across the state.

According to Beacon, opening a location in Brownsville provides service in the Rio Grande Valley region of South Texas. The new Georgetown branch is in the vibrant Austin-Round Rock-Georgetown metro area, where customers are expected to benefit from inventory and on-time delivery via the Beacon OTC network.

“Both residential and commercial contractors will gain service and expertise from us in these growing Texas markets,” said Peter Lippert, Beacon’s regional vice president, Texas. “The customer experience we provide will save contractors time and help them to serve their own customers. We also look forward to being active in our new communities, giving back via programs like our national partnership with 'Rebuilding Together'."
