Beamish day

CRH Canada acquires assets from K.J. Beamish Construction Co.

In May 2017, CRH Canada reached an agreement with K.J. Beamish Construction Co., Limited (Beamish) for the purchase of certain of its road construction assets and aggregate pits, quarries and properties north of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

The acquisition included nine Beamish facilities located in Bark Lake, Barrie, Coboconk, Holt, King City, Lindsay, Midland, and Orillia, and a Joint Venture asphalt plant in Barrie, Ontario.  We proudly welcomed approximately 250 employees to the CRH Canada family as result of this transaction.

The aggregate pits and quarries have been integrated into Dufferin Aggregates and we are confident that this acquisition allows us to be closer to our customers in developing urban areas and better meet their needs in the long term.
