Rinker Acquires JR & Sons Ready Mix

Staff | September 28, 2010

St. George, Utah— Rinker Materials has announced its acquisition of JR & Sons Ready Mix of St. George. The acquisition includes four concrete plants, a quarry and other aggregates assets and enables Rinker to enter a new market in one of the fastest-growing regions of Utah — the southwest corner of the state along Interstate 15.

JR & Sons' largest aggregate operation and concrete plant is located on-site to service Suncor's 5,800-lot Coral Canyon master-planned residential development at St. George. The other concrete and aggregate operations are in smaller markets nearby.

The business will continue to be managed by members of the Robinson family, the previous owners.

Rinker CEO David Clarke said the JR & Sons acquisition will be a "bolt-on" to the group's existing Las Vegas operations. "This will strengthen our aggregates and downstream positions in one of the fastest-growing regions of the United States," he said.

Rinker Materials is the U.S. subsidiary of Rinker Group Limited, Sydney, Australia.
