Oldcastle APG outdoor living program adds sand, soil packaging assets

Oldcastle APG has extended its outdoor living market footprint and production capabilities by acquiring the packaging operations of Sterling Sand LLC, West Columbia, S.C., and soil business of Soil Mender Products, Tulia, Texas. 

With one North Carolina and three South Carolina facilities, Sterling Sand is a leading regional processor and distributor of specialty sands for construction, recreation, industrial and other end-market uses. As an established co-packer for Oldcastle APG’s Techniseal product line—well established in the hardscapes arena—Sterling is a key partner in polymeric sand bagging and distribution.

A co-packer for large Oldcastle APG retail accounts, Soil Mender Products is a leading regional source of lawn and garden solutions that promote soil health, biodiversity and outdoor aesthetics while supporting a thriving ecosystem. Its advantageous geographic position, coupled with exceptional product offerings and industry knowledge, effectively strengthen Oldcastle APG’s Lawn & Garden business in the South Central region.

“As North America’s leading provider of integrated and sustainable outdoor living solutions, we are excited to welcome Sterling Sand and Soil Mender Products to the APG Family as we enhance our Techniseal and Lawn & Garden manufacturing capabilities,” says Oldcastle APG President Tim Ortman. “With increased production and growth in the Carolinas, Texas and surrounding markets, we can continue to provide end-to-end outdoor living solutions to customers across the country.”

Sterling Sand’s Carolinas packaging operations position the Oldcastle APG Techniseal brand for Southeast market share growth.
