Lehigh Hanson Inc. acquired the assets of Meriwether Ready Mix, a Griffin, Ga., operator serving residential and commercial building customers from four plants south of Atlanta. The transaction is a bolt-on to Lehigh Hanson’s Fairburn Ready Mix business, whose seven plants are located mostly along the Interstate 85 corridor from Fairburn, Ga., near Atlanta, to Auburn, Ala.
“After the acquisition of Corliss Resources in the U.S. Pacific Northwest at the beginning of the year, we are now strengthening our position in the U.S. South East,” said Dr. Dominik von Achten, chairman of Lehigh Hanson parent HeidelbergCement. “The acquisition of the Meriwether Ready Mix assets will enhance our integrated footprint in the rapidly growing Metro Atlanta area. These operations better position us to capture growth potential and serve a broader customer base with a wide range of sustainable, low carbon concrete products, and digital solutions.”
