Beacon Roofing Supply, Inc. (Nasdaq: BECN) ("Beacon") announced today that it has acquired Contractors Roofing & Supply Co.

Ken Bennett, CRS’s owner who will be leaving to pursue other business interests, stated "I am thrilled that CRS will continue as part of Beacon, which can offer CRS’s customers wider access to roofing and other building products while maintaining and enhancing the high level of service and value that CRS has provided over the years. Beacon also offers our employees and their families greater opportunities for growth in the roofing distribution business."

Paul Isabella, Beacon’s CEO and President, stated: “The CRS acquisition, combined with the expected opening Monday, August 6, 2012, of a new Roof Depot branch in St. Louis, gives us a solid presence in the very important and active St. Louis market. CRS has developed a strong and loyal customer base, and its dedicated and experienced team will work closely with our new branch to deliver the highest level of service and product offering to the St. Louis contractor community. We are excited to be in St. Louis and look forward to further growth in that market."
