Martin Marietta Materials‘ takeover bid for Vulcan Materials has strengthened the competitive fire between the nation’s two largest aggregate producers. And understandably so. The companies have been going at each other pretty good lately, since Martin Marietta announced its intentions on Dec. 12 to acquire Vulcan via an all-stock transaction valued at a reported $4.7 billion. Martin Marietta says a merger would work, creating a global leader in construction aggregates. Vulcan says it’s a bad idea.

Martin Marietta’s information can be found at How about Vulcan’s? Say no more.
