U.S. Concrete has expanded its metro New York-New Jersey ready mixed and aggregate business, Eastern Concrete Materials, acquiring the production assets of Staten Island’s Diamond Concrete, Inc. The one-plant, 24-mixer truck deal extends the Eastern Concrete footprint to the New York City borough’s east side, where commercial and residential building are projected to increase in the coming years.

“We are committed to growing our footprint through bolt-on acquisitions to better deliver quality concrete with the highest level of customer service,” notes U.S. Concrete CEO William Sandbrook. “Adding this site displays commitment to increasing our ability to better serve the greater New York City construction market.”
