Columbus firm acquires Centerville concrete company
Jul, 11 2012
(Ohio) -- A Centerville concrete block provider has been acquired by a Columbus-area company.
Wilson Concrete Products was purchased July 1 by Delaware-based Oberfields LLC for an undisclosed sum.
On Monday, Oberfields officials told the Columbus Business First, an affiliated paper of the Dayton Business Journal, that it bought Wilson Concrete’s equipment, trucks, forklifts and concrete block inventory.
Oberfields also will sell its line of concrete products at Wilson Concrete’s former location, which includes some manufacturing capability as well, said John Doubikin, the company’s director of sales.
The asset acquisition is the second in the last month for Oberfields. In June, the company bought equipment and inventory from Wellnitz Co., which closed its Columbus-area operations as its Hazelbaker Industries Ltd. parent said it planned to focus on its assisted living business.
“I think that’s our goal — to grow into some markets we see some opportunity in,” Doubikin said.
