LafargeHolcim has announced the acquisition of Tarrant Concrete, a ready mix concrete maker in the United States. This acquisition expands LafargeHolcim’s presence in the United States, and is expected to strengthen the company’s existing operations in the Dallas/Fort Worth area of Texas.
“The acquisition of Tarrant Concrete follows our Strategy 2022 – ‘Building for Growth’ by capturing growth opportunities in our most attractive markets,” says LafargeHolcim CEO Jan Jenisch in a press release. “By being highly complementary to our existing business, Tarrant Concrete will allow us to expand our ability to serve customers in a high growth area of Texas. I very much welcome all employees of Tarrant Concrete to our company.”
Tarrant Concrete currently operates three ready-mix concrete plants with net sales of more than $40 million and employs 90 employees. Over the past decade, the Dallas/Fort-Worth metropolitan area has been one of the fastest growing regions in the nation.
