“We are pleased to expand Beacon’s footprint in this growing Mississippi Gulf Coast market,” said Lynn France, Beacon’s regional vice president, Southeast. “This new branch is stocked with leading brands of residential and commercial roofing and complementary products, including Beacon’s own TRI-BUILT® products.
