Hanson expands in Seattle with acquisition

By |  January 10, 2022

Lehigh Hanson logoLehigh Hanson acquired Corliss Resources, a family-owned aggregate and ready-mixed concrete producer in the Pacific Northwest.

According to HeidelbergCement, Lehigh Hanson’s parent company, the acquisition includes aggregate operations with annual sales volumes of about 2 million tons and reserves and resources around 170 million tons, with four concrete plants selling about 0.3 million cubic meters in the greater Seattle area.

Both parties agreed not to disclose the purchase price.

“The acquisition of the Corliss operations is a great strategic fit with our already strong presence in cement, aggregates and ready-mixed concrete in the Pacific Northwest,” says Dominik von Achten, chairman of the managing board of HeidelbergCement. “The transaction significantly enhances our vertically integrated position in one of the fastest growing U.S. markets. We welcome the 230 Corliss employees to the HeidelbergCement family and look forward to accelerating the growth together.”

HeidelbergCement says greater Seattle is a prospering and sustainability-focused market within the growing state of Washington.

“For more than five generations, the Corliss family has proudly served our customers with high-quality building materials and contributed to the growth and development of our communities,” says Steve Corliss, president of Corliss Resources. “We are convinced that Lehigh Hanson is best-suited to continue building on the legacy of growth, excellence and quality that our family has established.”
