A ChronicleHerald report with limited detail on the partnership structure notes that Lafarge will contribute nine ready mixed plants plus four aggregate operations to the business, and maintain its Brookfield, NS, cement plant.

“This expanded Quality Concrete will bring tremendous benefits to our Atlantic Canada customers, and strengthen our position as a leader in the Atlantic ready mix concrete and aggregate markets,” says Scott Stevens, vice president, Quality Concrete parent, Stevens Group.

Quality Concrete President Mel Fiander will head the integrated business in tandem with Vice President of Operations Alex Kennedy, who had served as Lafarge ready mix and aggregates general manager.
