U.S. Concrete Inc. acquired two sand-and-gravel operations from E&A Materials Inc. and Pitts Sand & Gravel Inc., respectively. The operations are located near Vernon, Texas, and Waurika, Okla.

According to a press release, U.S. Concrete plans to improve the operating dynamics of its northern Texas and southern Oklahoma operations by combining the efforts of this business into one cohesive unit with its existing ready-mixed concrete operations.

“We are excited to welcome this highly complementary business to our growing family of companies and, specifically, this addition to our aggregates operations,” says William J. Sandbrook, president and CEO of U.S. Concrete. “This acquisition provides us a unique opportunity to improve the operating efficiencies of our overall business in southern Oklahoma and northern Texas. As we move forward, we remain intensely focused on further increasing our level of vertical integration through increasing our aggregate profile.”

According to a press release, U.S. Concrete has 13 producing aggregates facilities, 139 standard ready-mixed concrete plants and 16 volumetric ready-mixed concrete facilities. U.S. Concrete sold about 4.7 million tons of aggregates and about 5.7 million cu. yd. of ready-mixed concrete in 2014.
