Eagle Materials acquires Martin Marietta’s Northern California cement import business

Eagle Materials has completed its acquisition of Martin Marietta’s cement import and distribution business in Northern California. The business is centred on the Stockton cement terminal in San Joaquin County. Eagle Materials hopes that the new business will enable it to extend and strengthen its reach across its heartland US cement sales network.

President and CEO Michael Haack said “Our Nevada Cement operations have long-standing customer relationships in Northern California, and this acquisition will uniquely position us to better serve these and new customers with complementary imported product. Our entire cement system is currently ‘sold out,’ and this acquisition will enable us to more actively participate in the strong US demand environment.”
