Oldcastle APG has acquired Ohio-based Barrette Outdoor Living, consummating an agreement that CRH Plc announced last month, but prior to the Dublin parent company formally designating where the fencing, railing and accent business would reside in the North American management structure. Barrette Outdoor Living operates 10 manufacturing facilities and four distribution sites across the U.S. and Canada. It expands Oldcastle APG’s ability to offer retailers, dealers, contractors and consumers a more diverse and comprehensive suite of durable and sustainable outdoor solutions.
“We are delighted to welcome Barrette Outdoor Living, along with its employees and loyal customer base, to Oldcastle APG,” says President Tim Ortman. “We are excited to see how the integration of our operations and product offerings, which are often installed alongside each other, will solidify APG’s position as the leading provider of building products for the complete outdoor living experience.” Barrette’s extensive variety of decorative fencing, screens and railing, he adds, complement signature Oldcastle APG lines: Belgard hardscapes, Sakrete packaged products, Techniseal polymeric sand, and PebbleTec pool finishes.
“We are thrilled to join the Oldcastle APG family, whose commitment to delivering high-quality products to customers aligns with ours,” says Barrette CEO Jean desAutels. “I am extremely proud of what we have achieved thus far, and believe Oldcastle APG will continue to grow our business from here.”
