BURNCO Acquires Image Concrete Inc.
Calgary/Dallas – Effective November 21, 2014, BURNCO Texas LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of BURNCO Rock Products Ltd, has acquired the assets of Image Concrete Inc. Founded in 1995, Image is a privately held ready-mix concrete supplier serving the Dallas-Fort Worth area. According to Clifford Hahne, Vice President of BURNCO Texas LLC, “the plant site in Irving will extend BURNCO’s service reach and complement its existing operations in Justin, Krugerville, and Benbrook”.
All of the Image employees have been offered continued employment and, according to Paul Rouse, General Manager of BURNCO Texas, “We look forward to having them join the BURNCO team”.
BURNCO Rock Products Ltd is a fourth generation family business established in Calgary in 1912 by James F. Burns. Today, the company is comprised of more than 1,200 employees and is the largest independent supplier of ready mix concrete in Canada, a major supplier of asphalt and aggregate products, and operates a network of landscape centers.
The acquisition of Gateway Concrete in September 2013 marked BURNCO’s entry into the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Earlier this fall BURNCO acquired the assets of Lucky’s Redi-Mix Co LLC in Benbrook. BURNCO also has ready mix concrete plants under construction in Aledo and Anna, both of which are expected to open early in 2015.
