U.S. Concrete acquired the assets of Sugar City Building Materials Co. in San Francisco’s East Bay area.

According to U.S. Concrete, Sugar City has more than 90 years of history and serves all sectors of the building materials market.

The deal includes a building material retail operation, two ready-mixed concrete batch plants and two concrete recycling systems, U.S. Concrete says. The retail operation will extend the footprint of the company’s Westside Concrete Materials network of locations, and the ready-mixed concrete assets will be added to the company’s Central Concrete operation.

The additions increase the Westside Concrete Materials network to six locations and the Central Concrete network to 28 ready-mixed concrete plants.

“An acquisition that adds to all of our Bay Area operations is a big win for U.S. Concrete,” says Ronnie Pruitt, president and CEO of U.S. Concrete. “Sugar City’s long history in this dynamic market allows us to immediately capitalize on these assets. Beyond the retail and concrete additions, its proximity to our aggregates terminal means we are able to expand our distribution of Orca high-performance concrete aggregates from Polaris Materials. These additions strengthen each of our segments and further add to shareholder value.”
