Beacon announced that it has opened a greenfield location in Longview, Texas. The Longview branch services the east Texas market supporting Gregg County customers. 

“We are pleased to expand Beacon’s footprint in this growing corridor where Interstate 20 and U.S. highways 80 and 259 converge,” said Peter Lippert, Beacon’s regional vice president, Texas. “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 to the new location, Beacon said customers on the go across the region can use the Beacon PRO+ mobile app to save time and track deliveries.

This is Beacon’s third greenfield opening in Texas this year and fourth new branch nationwide. The company anticipates at least 15 by the end of the year. 

According to a release, Beacon states expanding its ability to serve customers through opening greenfield locations in growing areas is "an example of the significant progress Beacon has made" toward achieving growth above market and excellence in customer experience, as laid out in its Ambition 2025 strategy.
