Summit Materials has significantly boosted its Kansas ready mixed production capacity, acquiring Concrete Supply of Topeka/Builders Choice Concrete, while also extending its Houston presence by closing on Southwest Ready Mix and Colorado County Sand & Gravel.

Concrete Supply/Builders Choice spans one western Missouri and 10 Kansas ready mixed plants, plus Topeka and northeast Kansas sand & gravel sites. The operations are strategic to Summit Materials’ Great Plains businesses: Cornejo & Sons, Wichita and Hamm Inc., Perry, Kan., and Con-Agg of Missouri, Columbia.

Southwest and Colorado County add concrete and aggregate assets to Alleyton Resource, a platform business Summit acquired in January 2014. The bolt-on properties position Alleyton, concentrated in the west Houston metro area, with six sand & gravel and seven ready mixed plants. The latter operate as Allied Concrete, running a fleet of 11 concrete pumps and 150-plus mixers.

Summit CEO Tom Hill characterizes the Texas and Kansas package as “A great cultural, geographic and business match with us and a furtherance of our strategy of growth through acquisitions.”
