LafargeHolcim has acquired Metro Mix, LLC, a leading provider of ready-mix concrete in the Denver metropolitan area in Colorado. With Metro Mix, LafargeHolcim further strengthens its position in the United States, where it is already present with operations in cement, ready-mix concrete, aggregates and asphalt.
Jan Jenisch, CEO of LafargeHolcim: “This is our fourth acquisition this year in line with our Strategy 2022 – ‘Building for Growth’. Metro Mix’ operations are highly complementary to our existing footprint and will allow us to gain a larger share in a growing market with immediate commercial and operational synergies. I very much welcome all employees of Metro Mix to our company.”
Metro Mix operates two ready-mix concrete plants and reported net sales of around USD 30 million in 2017. The company has more than 50 employees and operates in one of the fastest growing areas in the US where population growth until 2020 will be above average and demand for building materials is expected to remain strong driven by large construction projects.
