Ashmore Bros in Greer has been sold to the Rogers Group, based in Nashville, Tennessee for an undisclosed sum.
Dave Rechter, divisional vice president, Rogers, said the company matched up with the Ashmore-run business.
“When we first approached one another their core values, in regards to safety, employees and their involvement within the communities they serve, is very much in alignment with our core values at Rogers,” Rechter said.
Rechter said the Rogers Group identified South Carolina as a state it wanted to be in. The sale connects Rechter’s territory that also includes North Carolina and Virginia. Ashmore’s three asphalt plants will give the Rogers Group 43 spread over nine states.
“This is a natural progression for us,” Rechter said. “It’s a good state for us to expand into, especially the greater Greenville market. There’s a lot going on now.”
