Director of Supply Chain

Location: Concord

Beacon Roofing Supply, Inc. is the largest publicly traded distributor of residential and non-residential roofing and complementary building products in North America with more than 8,500 employees and 550 branches. In Canada, we currently operate 22 branches located in 6 different provinces. We are recognized throughout the building supply industry for having industry leading talent, superior service and top quality building products.

Beacon’s mission is to be the leading North American supplier to commercial and residential roofing and exterior building contractors through a family of long-established regional suppliers and to add value to our contractor customers' businesses, to our employees' careers, to our investors' assets, and to our suppliers' products. Our mission is underpinned by our Employer of Choice strategy which has positioned us to attract, develop, engage and retain the best talent in the marketplace.

Our local branches stock a comprehensive product line that caters to their markets. In addition to roofing, local product offerings can include windows, siding, decking, waterproofing and many other external building products. Our status as a leader in our industry allows us to develop strong partnerships with leading brand manufacturers and to stock an unmatched supply of the professional components necessary for the quality, timely completion of our contractor-customers projects.

We provide our customers with a comprehensive array of value-added services which distinguish us from our competition. We have earned a reputation for excellent employees, professionalism and high-quality service. We believe that quality service does not end with the delivery of materials – it ends with the successful completion of the project. As a result, “partnerships” are formed between Beacon branches and our customers that go beyond the industry norm.

Beacon has grown by expanding organically within existing regions and by making strategic acquisitions. Our business is well-balanced between new and re-roof applications in both residential and commercial markets. A highly scalable platform, a proven business model, results-oriented management and a strong people-focused corporate culture give us a solid foundation for continued growth.
