CRH expands in the USA

4 Mar 20 CRH subsidiary Oldcastle APG has bought a dry-mix manufacturer based in the US state of Colorado.

The acquisition of US Mix fills a gap in APG's dry-mix manufacturing footprint, provides additional materials science expertise and adds the US Spec brand to its existing dry-mix product portfolio of Sakrete and Amerimix.

US Mix primarily operates out of a manufacturing facility in Denver, with a secondary bagging location in Fontana, California. The company was founded in 1968 and has been privately owned by the Peterson family for over 50 years. Its products include bagged concretes, mortars and specialty cement mixes, in addition to liquid repair products.

US Mix currently operates as a Sakrete and Amerimix licensee and offers a variety of specialty products under the US Spec brand. The US Spec range includes concrete and masonry repair products that are used in a variety of applications and have been formulated and tested in laboratory conditions under ASTM testing methods and specifications.
