Oldcastle Lawn & Garden has acquired Illinois-based River City Landscape Supply, the Midwest’s leading wholesaler of bulk and bagged mulches and decorative rocks. The deal allows the division of Atlanta-based Oldcastle Architectural to better serve key markets through broad distribution capabilities. With our strategic plant placements within easy shipping range of important Midwest lawn and garden markets, a large number of our customers will be easily serviced by one-way and round trip trucking opportunities, notes Oldcastle Lawn & Garden President Eoin Lehane.
River City’s strengths in manufacturing partner well with its logistical abilities through Sauget and Marseilles, Ill., plant locations, Oldcastle officials affirm. In addition to its retail oriented products, River City produces potting soils for professional growers, custom blended landscape soils and bulk mulches. The company also operates a river terminal in Alabama for raw material sourcing and processing. The plants and terminal join 18 other sites where Oldcastle Lawn & Garden packages soils, mulches or decorative rock.
