Command Alkon acquired Libra Systems, a provider of materials production, scale ticketing, asset management and business integration solutions for the aggregate, asphalt and concrete industries.

Libra, now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Command Alkon, is based in Harleysville, Pennsylvania.

“This joining between Command Alkon and Libra Systems Inc. will add more scope to the array of products and services available to asphalt, aggregate and concrete producers worldwide,” says David Cardy, CEO at Libra Systems.

Adds Ken Cardy, Libra Systems president: “Libra customers will benefit from these combined resources by having access to an expanded set of solutions and the latest in technological advances directed by the same successful Libra Systems Inc. workforce that has built a reputation for quality products and service to the industry.”

Command Alkon CEO Phil Ramsey weighed in on the companies coming together, as well.

“Libra Systems, Inc. and Command Alkon have nearly 100 years [of] combined expertise in the heavy work industry,” Ramsey says. “We’re excited to combine our two companies’ approaches to make it simple for customers to take advantage of the cost savings and maximized production and delivery operations that our solutions deliver across the construction materials supply chain.”

According to Command Alkon, account and service representatives for Comman Alkon and Libra products will remain available.

Also this fall, Command Alkon entered into an agreement to acquire Trimble’s construction logistics business. According to Command Alkon, that transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter this year.

That acquisition will combine Trimble construction logistics telematics solutions with Command Alkon’s fleet and workforce management offerings for the heavy work community. Trimble’s construction logistics solutions provide ready-mixed concrete and aggregate delivery managers with tools to track, schedule, route and communicate across fleets for efficient delivery of products. Fleets benefit from automated real-time vehicle location and status, turn-by-turn navigation, monitoring and diagnostics as well as business analytics and reporting.
