For over 70 years Garvin has served design professionals, contractors and owners with complete building envelope solutions including waterproofing, restoration, glass, tinting and glazing. “Joining Beacon and its growing waterproofing division will enable us to continue serving our loyal customers and provide them additional products and services,” commented George Bukuras, Garvin’s President & CEO. “I have the utmost confidence that our employees and customers will thrive with Beacon. This next step for our family-built business will allow it to grow and contribute to Beacon’s Ambition 2025,” added Brendan Garvin, Sr., Garvin’s Chairman of the Board.

“We are grateful that the Garvin family has trusted Beacon with the ownership of Garvin Construction Products, and we wholeheartedly welcome Garvin’s employees and customers to the Beacon team. The customer focus and technical expertise that enabled Garvin to thrive for seven decades is an ideal match for our values and mission,” said Martin Harrell, Beacon’s Waterproofing Division President. “Today’s building environment requires resiliency solutions for new construction and restoration projects. From products for the roof to the building exterior to below grade, Beacon is very well positioned to support contractors nationwide.”

Beacon’s building envelope capabilities are national following the acquisition of Coastal Construction Products and Whitney Building Products in 2022, which added to the Company’s leading footprint for residential and commercial waterproofing products and expertise.

In line with our Ambition 2025 plan to grow above market by expanding our footprint and complementary product offering, Beacon has completed eight acquisitions and opened 16 new greenfield locations to date in 2023.
