Midwest Block closed on the Southern Concrete Products Masonry Division earlier this month, naming (Midwest) veteran Mike Stone as general manager responsible for acquired Oakland and Lexington, Tenn., and Sardis, Miss., production facilities.

The transaction strengthens one of the top regional independents in concrete masonry production and block & brick distribution. Midwest Block & Brick has divisions throughout Missouri, Arkansas, Illinois, Kansas, Oklahoma and Tennessee, and will offer Southern Concrete customers a broader product range, expanded support from a seasoned sales staff, and showroom facilities. The acquired properties will operate as Southern Block & Brick, LLC DBA Midwest Block & Brick.

Lexington-based Southern Concrete Products Inc. maintains seven ready mixed plants, plus mobile production, serving markets along the Interstate 40 corridor between Nashville and Memphis.
