August 18, 2014 – Martin Marietta Materials has now sold what needed to be sold. The company completed the divestitures required pursuant to a consent decree that was a condition of the Department of Justice's clearance of Martin Marietta's acquisition of Texas Industries Inc., which closed on July 1, 2014. Martin Marietta sold to Vulcan Materials one quarry in Oklahoma and two rail yards in Dallas, for cash and real property. Now that they have completely that formality, the number one and number two aggregate producers in the nation can get back to working at being the number-one aggregates producer in the nation.
