Lafarge Canada acquired Westridge Quarries operations, expanding its aggregate business in Western Canada.

According to Lafarge, Westridge is a supplier of construction aggregates and contract crushing services for the Okanagan Valley. The acquisition aligns with Lafarge’s Strategy 2025 to expand its aggregate business through acquisitions of pits, quarries, docks and depots in high-growth markets.

“This is an exciting step forward in our 2025 growth strategy” says Brad Kohl, president and CEO of Lafarge in Western Canada. “This acquisition will allow us to expand our operating footprint and product offerings for our customers in the Okanagan. We will leverage significant synergies with our existing footprint that will strengthen the combined business.”

Lafarge says the deal includes two quarries and one sand and gravel reserve in the Okanagan that will provide long-term reserves in an established market, as well as other real estate.

“We are thrilled to make acquisitions that anticipate our customers’ needs and look forward to welcoming our 70 new colleagues into the Lafarge family,” says Lincoln Kyne, senior vice president of British Columbia and the  Pacific Northwest in the U.S. at Lafarge.

Trevor Isaac, general manager and co-owner of Westridge Quarries, is excited for his organization to join forces with Lafarge.

“This acquisition represents a tremendous opportunity for our staff and partners and will ensure that Westridge Quarries remains an industry leader in service, quality and sustainability,” Isaac says. “We look forward to watching them continue building from the foundation that has been established.”

Lafarge, a member of the Holcim Group, employs more than 6,900 people across 400 sites in Canada.
