Mississippi Lime Co., a supplier of high-calcium lime products, came to an agreement to acquire Covia, which historically operates as Southern Lime.

Southern Lime, based in Calera, Alabama, is a supplier of high-calcium quicklime and hydrated lime products to customers across the Southeast. The company has been in operation for more than 60 years.

With the acquisition, Mississippi Lime now has production facilities in nine different locations, supported by a network of distribution sites across the United States. The Calera operation will be fully integrated into existing Mississippi Lime operations.

“We are thrilled to welcome the Calera operation to our business,” says William Ayers, CEO of Mississippi Lime. “This acquisition advances our mission to provide world-class lime products and solutions through differentiated quality, technical expertise, and customer service. Entering the Southeast enables us to expand this tradition in an attractive market, while growing our customer and end market base.”

The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including the receipt of regulatory approval, according to Mississippi Lime.
