Moreau takes over for Edwards at LafargeHolcim U.S. ACM

Jay Moreau has transitioned from Martin Marietta senior vice president of Operations Services to LafargeHolcim U.S. Aggregates and Construction Materials chief executive officer. He will oversee one of the top producers in ready mixed concrete, sand & gravel, crushed stone and asphalt—encompassing Aggregate Industries Management and sister operations brought under one umbrella following Lafarge North America and Holcim (US) Inc. parent companies’ 2015 merger.

“Jay has a proven track record in this industry, and his expertise and strong focus on commercial growth and operational excellence will be valued contributions,” says LafargeHolcim Region Head, North America René Thibault. “Having started his career in commercial roles, we know he will bring strong leadership to the organization and drive continued growth across our U.S. business.”

Moreau rose through the Martin Marietta ranks to regional vice president, general manager and division president leading into his most recent position. He succeeds Guy Edwards, who as part of late-2018 LafargeHolcim management changes returned to the United Kingdom as Aggregate Industries chief executive officer.


LafargeHolcim has acquired the ready mixed and aggregates production assets of Transit Mix Concrete Co., a subsidiary of Continental Materials Corp., in a $27 million deal. Transit Mix has a payroll of 180-plus, serves the Colorado Springs and Pueblo, Colo., markets, and reported adjusted 2017 revenues of $63 million.

“Colorado has been a dynamic and growing market, and Transit Mix Concrete Co. has been a part of that growth,” says Thibault. “They are the largest construction materials producer in the Southern Front Range, and this is a great opportunity to expand our business in Colorado.”

The Transit Mix brand will be maintained. Its operations extend the LafargeHolcim reach farther south of Denver, where the company has a strong presence in ready mixed and aggregates through its legacy business, Aggregate Industries, and Metro Mix, acquired in August 2018.
