BMC Enterprises Inc. made three additions to its Missouri aggregates business: the opening of a new BMC Stone quarry in High Hill; the acquisition of a strategic interest in Base Rock Minerals LLC, a limestone quarry in Bonne Terre; and the subsequent acquisition of Strack Stone Co., a limestone quarry located just north of Cape Girardeau. Strack Stone will now operate under the Base Rock Minerals name.
Nathan G. McKean, chief executive officer of BMC Enterprises, stated, "We are delighted to announce these aggregate acquisitions, which demonstrate our continued commitment to a sustainable growth strategy. The pro-business administration in Jefferson City has given us a renewed optimism about the Missouri economy.”
McKean added further, “We are pleased to partner with the Bauman family and are looking forward to continued growth with our limestone businesses in southern Missouri. We are also very excited with the new opportunities these transactions will bring to everyone involved with the parent organization.”
The three quarries vertically position BMC along the major interstate corridors from its hub in St. Louis Metro.“This will dramatically increase our ability to service our customers with expanded product offerings,” said McKean, “and will enable the parent company to participate more fully in future transportation and infrastructure investment in the state.”
