Beacon Buys Lowry’s Distribution
(May 19, 2017) Beacon Roofing Supply, Herndon, Va., has acquired 11-unit Lowry’s Specialty Distribution, which distributes waterproofing products, sealants and air barriers in California, Hawaii, Utah and Arizona.
Family-owned for more than 40 years, Lowry’s has seven branches in California, two in Hawaii, and one each in Utah and Arizona. The acquisition marks Beacon’s entry into Hawaii.
The 11 branches will continue to operate under the leadership of president Craig Dirickson as Lowry’s, Systems Waterproofing Supply, and Can-Do Supply.
Lowry’s co-owners Keith and Michael Musante, who will both stay on, said, “Becoming part of a public company with a presence across the entire United States and Canada creates opportunities for Lowry’s to grow our business beyond what we could have done on our own and offers our employees career advancement options that are unique to the distribution industry, all while maintaining the entrepreneurial spirt and brand loyalty to Lowry’s, SWS and Can-Do that we have worked so hard to develop over the last 40 years.”
