Mississippi Lime Co., an HBM Holdings company headquartered in St. Louis, acquired United Kingdom-based Singleton Birch.

The acquisition of Singleton Birch, an independent supplier of lime products, is part of Mississippi Lime’s global expansion plan. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“For more than 115 years, Mississippi Lime has been focused on meeting the evolving needs and priorities of our customers,” says Paul Hogan, president and CEO of Mississippi Lime. “That focus has served our customers, our employees and our business very well. Our approach is to grow by finding businesses that represent a good cultural fit for us and can complement what we already provide to customers. Singleton Birch is a great fit, and we are delighted to welcome them to the Mississippi Lime family today.”

According to Mississippi Lime, Singleton Birch employs more than 150 people. Singleton Birch will continue to operate under its existing brand, and the management team led by CEO Richard Stansfield will remain in place.

“Singleton Birch has done tremendous work, and we are grateful that Richard and the leadership team will remain in their roles leading the business,” Hogan says. “This acquisition is about growth, innovation and sustainability, and we do not anticipate reducing the number of jobs at Singleton Birch as a result of this transaction.”

Adds Stansfield: “Being part of the Mississippi Lime family will enable us to invest more and power the growth of Singleton Birch. We’re delighted to have a partner for the next stage in our development that shares our culture and values.”

Mississippi Lime says Singleton Birch has a number of business lines, including a chemicals division that provides specialty calcium products to the rubber and plastics markets. Singleton Birch also provides services and solutions to the renewable energy, water treatment and waste management industries.
