U.S. Concrete acquires another concrete producer

By |  August 22, 2016

U.S.-Concrete-Logo-150U.S. Concrete Inc. acquired the assets of Kings Ready Mix, a ready-mix concrete producer headquartered in Brooklyn, New York.

Kings has served the New York metropolitan area for more than 20 years and currently operates four ready-mix concrete plants and a fleet of 62 mixer trucks, according to U.S. Concrete. Kings primarily covers the non-union, low- and mid-rise building construction market in Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens.

“We remain committed to purchasing and integrating well-located ready-mixed concrete producers with great underlying businesses and reputations in new and existing markets,” says William J. Sandbrook, U.S. Concrete president and CEO. “This acquisition further demonstrates our ability to do that. The combination of Kings and U.S. Concrete should allow for additional project diversity on an expanded customer base while delivering concrete more efficiently through enhanced logistics, streamlined operations and other cost-saving efforts. We are thrilled to have the Kings team on board.”

Kings is the second New York City area concrete producer U.S. Concrete has acquired this month. U.S. Concrete also purchased Jenna Concrete Corp.
