Beacon Roofing Supply Acquires West Coast Distributor

Beacon Roofing Supply Inc., Peabody, MA, ($850 million in revenues) has acquired C& S Roofing Materials Inc., doing business as Pacific Supply Company, a west coast distributor of roofing and other building products headquartered in Orange, CA.

Pacific operates four facilities in Southern California that offer residential and commercial roofing products and other complementary building products. Pacific was founded in 1970, employs 123 associates and generated net sales of $53 million for the year ended Dec. 31, 2005.

Consistent with Beacon’s other acquisitions, Pacific’s facilities will continue operating under their local identity to continue the close relationships they have developed with their customers.

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.

Robert Buck, CEO of Beacon, emphasized the overall strategic importance of the Pacific acquisition and stated, “Pacific is a respected supplier in Southern California and opens up the entire west coast to us for additional expansion. They have experienced employees and California is a terrific new market for us.”

Beacon Roofing Supply, Inc. is a distributor of roofing materials and complementary building products operating 142 branches in 30 states in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, Central Plains, Southeast, Southwest and Western regions of the United States and in Eastern Canada.
