Holcim U.S., with offices in Chicago, has acquired a new aggregate operation from J-2 Contracting Co., a Colorado-based general contractor.   

According to a news release from Holcim, the company gains a large volume of high-quality aggregate reserves from J-2 and strengthens its place as a long-term, reliable aggregate supplier in Colorado, one of its fastest-growing markets in the U.S.  

The deal includes substantial aggregate reserves in the form of a fully permitted and operational sand and gravel site near Greeley, Colorado, which Holcim will name the Scout Island Facility. A full range of screened, crushed and washed construction aggregate products are currently mined and sold at the site, seamlessly aligning with Holcim's focus on building a greener future.  

"The addition of this operation ensures we will continue to provide remarkable products, spanning dozens of applications, ranging from ready-mixed and precast concrete, asphalt and base material for street and road construction for years to come across the region," says Chance Allen, head of the mountain region at Holcim. "We welcome several full-time employees into Holcim with this transaction who will help us continue to build our footprint in the rapidly growing Colorado construction market."  

As part of the transaction, the operations will be managed by Nicholas Lott, the general manager for the west central region at Holcim.
