Martin Marietta Completes Blue Water Industries Transaction

Martin Marietta Materials Inc. has completed its previously announced acquisition of 20 active aggregates operations in Alabama, South Carolina, South Florida, Tennessee and Virginia from affiliates of Blue Water Industries LLC (BWI Southeast) for $2.05 billion in cash. 

This portfolio-optimizing transaction improves the company’s product mix, margin profile and durability through economic cycles by adding another pure aggregates business to its already aggregates-led portfolio, the company stated.

Ward Nye, chairman, president and CEO of Martin Marietta stated, “The BWI Southeast acquisition naturally complements Martin Marietta’s existing geographic footprint in the dynamic southeast region by allowing us to expand into new growth platforms in SOAR-specific target markets including Nashville and Miami. Combined with the recent acquisition of Albert Frei & Sons, Inc. in Colorado, these two pure-play aggregates transactions provide approximately 1 billion tons of proven, high-quality reserves and are expected to generate more than $180 million of annualized EBITDA.”
