LafargeHolcim has acquired Metro Mix, a Denver-based provider of ready-mix concrete, in a bid to strengthen its position in the US. The transaction is the company’s fourth acquisition of the year and is part of its Strategy 2022 – ‘Building for Growth.’
Jan Jenisch, CEO of LafargeHolcim, says: “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.”
Metro Mix operates two ready-mix concrete plants and reported net sales of around £30m in 2017. The company has more than 50 employees.
