We are excited about our future with Beacon, which shares our core corporate values."

Paul Isabella, Beacon’s CEO and President, emphasized the strategic fit of the acquisition and the compatibility of the two companies and stated, "Fowler & Peth is an industry leader and allows Beacon to expand our presence in the very important Denver market beyond our existing Denver branch and to serve customers in the surrounding states. Fowler & Peth is a key component to Beacon’s westward expansion plans and will be a gateway to further geographic growth for our company. I am thrilled to welcome Fowler & Peth to the Beacon team."
