Beacon Roofing Supply acquires Allied Building Products

Beacon Roofing Supply Inc., Herndon, Va., one of the largest publicly traded wholesale building materials distributors in the U.S. and Canada, has completed its acquisition of Allied Building Products Corp., East Rutherford, N.J., one of the largest exterior and interior building products distributors in the U.S., from Dublin-based CRH plc. Beacon Roofing Supply announced it had entered into a definitive purchase agreement to acquire Allied Building Products in August 2017.

The acquisition gives Beacon Roofing Supply about $7 billion in revenue and 589 branches throughout the U.S. and Canada. Beacon Roofing Supply also becomes the fourth largest wallboard and acoustical ceiling tile wholesale distributor in the U.S. Beacon Roofing Supply and Allied Building Products have more than 150 years of combined experience providing service to customers in the building products industry.

"We are pleased to announce the completion of the Allied acquisition, and we look forward to the successful integration of these two great companies," says Paul Isabella, president and CEO of Beacon Roofing Supply. "Beacon and Allied's leadership have worked closely together on the integration planning to ensure a collaborative approach and an outcome that preserves the expertise and strengths of both organizations. I want to thank the Beacon and Allied teams for their tireless work and cooperation to successfully complete the financing and closing processes efficiently and on schedule. This combination is about driving growth through the expansion of our geographic footprint and range of products and creating increased value for our customers and shareholders. This is a milestone day in the long and successful histories of both companies and we are thrilled to start the new year as one company."
