Beacon announced that it has completed the acquisition of waterproofing distributor Garvin Construction Products based in Medford, Mass., with four additional locations in North Haven, Conn., Beltsville, Md., Carlstadt, N.J., and Long Island City, N.Y.
“Joining Beacon and its growing waterproofing division will enable us to continue serving our loyal customers and provide them additional products and services,” said George Bukuras, Garvin’s president and CEO.
For over 70 years, Garvin has served design professionals, contractors and owners with complete building envelope solutions including waterproofing, restoration, glass, tinting and glazing.
“I have the utmost confidence that our employees and customers will thrive with Beacon. This next step for our family-built business will allow it to grow and contribute to Beacon’s Ambition 2025,” added Brendan Garvin, Sr., Garvin’s Chairman of the Board.
Martin Harrell, Beacon’s Waterproofing Division president, said the customer focus and technical expertise that enabled Garvin to thrive for seven decades is an "ideal match" for Beacon's values and mission.
“We are grateful that the Garvin family has trusted Beacon with the ownership of Garvin Construction Products, and we wholeheartedly welcome Garvin’s employees and customers to the Beacon team,” said Harrell. “Today’s building environment requires resiliency solutions for new construction and restoration projects. From products for the roof to the building exterior to below grade, Beacon is very well positioned to support contractors nationwide.”
Beacon’s building envelope capabilities are national following the acquisition of Coastal Construction Products and Whitney Building Products in 2022, which added to the Company’s leading footprint for residential and commercial waterproofing products and expertise.
Beacon has completed eight acquisitions and opened 16 new greenfield locations to date in 2023. Since launching its Ambition 2025 plan, more than 70 additional locations are serving Beacon customers.
