Smyrna Ready Mix Concrete buys Metro Ready Mix

Smyrna Ready Mix Concrete in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, has bought Metro Ready Mix, a Nashville, Tennessee, based concrete manufacturer and construction materials company.

The assets include 14 concrete plants in six counties in Middle Tennessee along with all equipment and construction materials.

Jeff Hollingshead, chief executive of Smyrna Ready Mix Concrete, said: “by joining the strengths and resources of both companies Smyrna Ready Mix Concrete will be an even more valuable business partner to our clients.”

Hollingshead said: “the acquisition of Metro Ready Mix will be mostly transparent to our client base; the name will change along with the branding.”

Combined, the company’s projected sales for 2014-2015 will be $75-$80 million. Smyrna Ready Mix Concrete now has 30 locations in Tennessee and Kentucky, 200 mixer trucks, four concrete pump trucks and a construction materials division operated by approximately 300 employees.

Smyrna Ready Mix was founded by Mike and Melissa Hollingshead in 2001 to provide better service to contractors and homeowners in the Rutherford County area. Prior to this most recent acquisition, Smyrna Ready Mix owned 17 concrete plants in Tennessee and Kentucky.

Metro Ready Mix was established in October 1982 and has been involved in almost every major concrete construction project in Middle Tennessee since its inception. Metro Ready Mix has earned numerous

Concrete Excellence Awards from the Tennessee Concrete Association (TCA), also being recognized by the National Ready Mix concrete Association (NRMCA), as well as other major concrete associations.
