Calgary/Saskatoon - BURNCO Rock Products Ltd has acquired the business
assets of Saskatoon’s Taylor Concrete Group. This acquisition gives BURNCO a permanent
site in Saskatchewan and continues their growth agenda.
Doug and Bernie Taylor, owners of Taylor Concrete Group, have been providing
quality products with personal care and service for over 30 years. When asked about the
acquisition they stated: “We are very pleased to welcome a 100 year old family business to
carry on providing exemplary service to customers in the Saskatoon area.” Both have
agreed to stay with the business through a transition period.
Michael Powell, President of BURNCO Rock Products Ltd states, “Taylor Concrete
Group was attractive to us because their personal and business values are similar to those
of BURNCO. They have been exceptional to work with over the duration of this acquisition
process.”
For the short-term, Taylor Concrete Group will run under the name, Taylor Rock
Products, a BURNCO Company. All employees are anticipated to continue with the
business. “When we go into new markets we prefer to use local talent and not parachute in
Calgary managers,” says BURNCO Rock Products Ltd CEO Scott Burns. “We intend to fully
integrate with the local community.” BURNCO’s desire is to run the business as a successful
supplier in the Saskatchewan market area.
BURNCO Rock Products Ltd is a fourth generation family business established in
Calgary in 1912 by James F. Burns. Today, BURNCO is Canada’s largest independent
supplier of ready-mix concrete, a major supplier of asphalt and aggregate products and
operates Western Canada’s largest network of Landscape Centres.
