Beacon Roofing Supply, Inc. has acquired Mississippi Roofing Supply, Inc. and Alabama Roofing Supply, LLC, affiliated companies. They are headquartered in Pearl, Miss. and Montgomery, Ala., respectively.
MRS and ARS operate a combined three facilities one in Mississippi and two in Alabama that offer residential and commercial roofing products and other complementary building products. Together the companies generated net sales of $76 million for the year ended Dec. 31, 2005. Consistent with Beacon’s other acquisitions, these facilities will continue operating under their local identities to maintain the close relationships they have developed with their customers.
Beacon Roofing Supply operates 145 branches in 30 states and in Eastern Canada. The $850 million company has been on the acquisition trail lately, just this week announcing the acquisition of C& S Roofing Materials Inc. (Pacific Supply Company), Orange, CA.
Before this acquisition, Beacon Roofing Supply bought Easton Wholesale Inc., a $9.3 million distributor, and Shelter Distribution Inc. for $170.3 million in cash. Shelter, a distributor of roofing and other building products in McKinney, TX, had $248 million in sales in 2004.
Also in 2005, Beacon purchased JGA Corp., Atlanta, GA, a $74 million distributor of roofing and other building products in Georgia and Florida, and Insulation Systems Inc., a $19 million distributor of commercial roofing and other complementary building products in Roanoke and Virginia Beach, VA.
