American Highway, a key supplier of wire mesh, dowel or tie bars and related welded assemblies, curing compounds plus other concrete pavement accessories, has closed on peer operator Highway Materials LLC of Becker, Minn. The full-service manufacturer, fabricator and distributor was founded in 2014 by Mark Brinkman and Jake Steinberg, who will remain with the business and focus on developing Upper Midwest market share.
“The acquisition of Highway Materials accelerates our strategic growth plan by adding manufacturing capacity and industry expertise,” says American Highway CEO Ron Meskis. “As members of the sales and management team, Mark and Jake will use their long-term relationships with dealers, contractors, and key vendors to position the company for future growth, expanding our business in the infrastructure market.” The company’s dedication to continuous improvement and innovation, he adds, allows team members to deliver enhanced customer support, and offers customers quality products that increase pavement service life.
