LafargeHolcim has announced the acquisition of Tarrant Concrete Co., a ready-mixed concrete manufacturer in the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) area, Texas, US.
According to Dodge Data and Analytics, only New York City had more building activity than DFW in 2017, making DFW one of the largest ready-mix concrete markets in the US.
“For more than four decades, Tarrant Concrete’s talented employees and strong focus on customer service have made it a partner of choice in Fort Worth and the surrounding area,” said Guy Edwards, CEO for LafargeHolcim’s US Aggregates & Construction Materials business. “Tarrant Concrete aligns well with our Lattimore Materials business, and I look forward to combining our expertise and strengths in Texas.”
Since 1968, Tarrant Concrete has successfully operated in the area, serving customers through three ready-mix plants at two locations in southwest Fort Worth.
“For the past 50 years, Tarrant Concrete has been a premier provider of ready-mix concrete in Texas, in large part due to our top-notch workforce and investment in our well-maintained fleet,” said James Rainbolt, President, Tarrant Concrete Co. “I strongly believe that joining forces with Lattimore and the LafargeHolcim family is an important step that will accelerate and expand our ability to better serve our customers.”
