Clements Concrete, a satellite business of integrated Orem, Utah operator Clyde Companies Inc., is acquiring the assets of single-plant Low’s Ready Mix, which serves concrete, aggregate, grout & fill customers in Boise, Caldwell and Nampa, Idaho.

“The entire Low’s Ready Mix team is exceptional. We admire their core values, commitment to community and caliber of customer satisfaction,” says Clements Area Manager Mark Elder. “Having [Low’s 70-member team] join us is a natural and fitting step in our growth.”

“Low’s has been an Idaho staple for over 60 years, and we feel that Clements Concrete shares a similar legacy of quality products and commitment to community building that has long since been a standard for our business,” adds Low’s Operations Manager Richard Frisby, who maintains his title in the transition.

Low’s fleet and Caldwell plant assets will position Clements Concrete among southwest Idaho’s largest ready-mix, asphalt and aggregate suppliers. They represent the second such transaction effected in the past month, following Clements’ purchase of asphalt production and construction assets from Boise-based C&A Paving Co.

Effective January 2017, the three businesses will adopt the brand of Sunroc Corp., the Clyde Cos. division under which they are grouped. St. George, Utah-based Sunroc currently spans ready mixed concrete, masonry, sand & gravel, asphalt and construction operations on 10 Utah, (pre-Clements) Idaho, Nevada and Wyoming sites.
