Rock Products + Aggregates Manager = BIG News


RR112619 acquisitionNov. 26, 2019 – The big news that hit last week is making waves around the industry. Yes, it is true. Rock Products' parent company SEMCO Publishing closed a deal to acquire the assets of Aggregates Manager. At last week's NSSGA's Legislative & Policy Forum, I fielded numerous questions about what the acquisition means. The emails and phone calls have not stopped since. What it means, in specific, is that Rock Products has the largest and strongest circulation of any industry magazine; the largest digital footprint; and thus, the broadest audience reach of any publication in the aggregates industry hands down. To answer two big questions that I have been asked, yes, Rock Products will continue to publish Aggregates Manager's "Aggregates Atlas" maps issue; and yes, Aggregates Manager Editor-in-Chief Therese Dunphy will continue to produce that, and also bring her editorial talents to the pages of Rock Products as a contributing editor. It is an exciting time for us. We look forward to next year with great optimism. Like next year's ConExpo-Con/Agg show, we are bigger and better than ever. 2020 is going to be a great year.
