Beacon Roofing Supply expanded its operations in 2010 by adding nine branches, while closing only two. The key strength of the company, according to its management team, is the stability of the roofing market which is somewhat insulated from swings in the overall building cycle. As a result, sales in 2010 were only down 5.3 percent in a sector where many other companies posted double-digit declines.
