BMC Enterprises has added to its Missouri aggregates business through the opening of the BMC Stone quarry in High Hill; acquisition of a strategic interest in Base Rock Minerals, LLC, a limestone quarry in Bonne Terre; and, acquisition of Strack Stone Co., a limestone quarry located just north of Cape Girardeau. The latter will operate under the Base Rock Minerals name.
“These acquisitions demonstrate our continued commitment to a sustainable growth strategy,” says BMC Enterprises CEO Nathan McKean. “The pro-business administration in Jefferson City has given us a renewed optimism about the Missouri economy.” The investments, he adds, “will dramatically increase our ability to service our customers with expanded product offerings, and enable the parent company to participate more fully in future transportation and infrastructure investment in the state.”
The three quarries vertically position BMC along the major interstate corridors from its hub in St. Louis Metro. BMC is the parent company of St. Louis ready mixed concrete market leader Breckenridge Materials, and has upward of 40 operations in Missouri and Illinois.
