Lehigh Hanson, a North American subsidiary of HeidelbergCement, acquired the assets of Meriwether Ready Mix, a ready-mixed concrete producer for residential and commercial customers.

Meriwether is based in Atlanta, which HeidelbergCement describes as a growing market with significant infrastructure projects planned in the coming year.

The assets acquired include four ready-mix plants and a fleet of mixer trucks.

“After the acquisition of Corliss Resources in the U.S. Pacific Northwest at the beginning of the year, we are now strengthening our position in the U.S. [Southeast],” says Dominik von Achten, chairman of the managing board of HeidelbergCement. “The acquisition of the Meriwether Ready Mix assets will enhance our integrated footprint in the rapidly growing metro Atlanta area.

“These operations better position us to capture this growth potential and serve a broader customer base with a wide range of sustainable, low-carbon concrete products and digital solutions,” von Achten adds. “We welcome the Meriwether employees to the HeidelbergCement team.”
