Swiss LafargeHolcim Expands Operations in Denver, Colorado Market

Swiss-based construction materials supplier LafargeHolcim acquired the assets of Metro Mix, a ready-mixed concrete manufacturer in Denver, Colorado. The company plans to expand into the region.

According to Eric Tyrrell, a co-owner of Metro Mix, the two businesses complement each other. “This is an opportunity for both teams to share expertise, networks and resources across our businesses, and to learn from one another’s experiences to help grow the greater Denver market.”

“Over the past 10 years, Denver has been a dynamic and growing market, and Metro Mix has been a part of that growth by successfully meeting customer needs,” said Guy Edwards, CEO for LafargeHolcim’s US Aggregates & Construction Materials business. “We see significant synergies between the Metro Mix operations and our local Aggregate Industries business that will allow us to strengthen our customer service and offerings in the region.”

Founded in 1999, Metro Mix has more than 50 employees at its two ready-mix plants situated in Denver and Castle Rock. Metro Mix will continue to operate under its current name. In the United States, LafargeHolcim companies include close to 350 sites in 43 states and employ 7,000 people.

“The building construction business is very competitive and to grow, you need to be teamed with a partner who values talented employees and quality customer service,” said Keith Minor, co-owner, Metro Mix. “We believe in surrounding ourselves by the best employees, products, equipment and resources, and I am confident that partnering with LafargeHolcim will enhance our ability to serve our customers.”
