The acquisition adds over 400 acres of land with reserves to the company's operations and a processing plant to achieve the highest efficiencies.
Furthermore, US Concrete has completed the divestiture of its Dallas/Fort Worth area lime operations to Lhoist North America, which includes two fixed plants, lime tankers and raw material tankers.
"We are excited to strengthen our aggregates operations in West Texas and to use the processing facility to produce high-quality materials that will be used in many of the market's ongoing and planned construction projects," said William J. Sandbrook, Chairman, President and CEO of US Concrete. "The lime divestiture gives us the ability to further our strategic focus of optimising our portfolio of assets and allocating money directly to growing our aggregates business while concurrently improving our balance sheet by reducing debt.”
