Summit Materials Buys Mainland Sand and Gravel

Summit Materials acquired Mainland Sand and Gravel, a supplier of construction aggregates to the Vancouver and Lower Mainland region of British Columbia, Canada. This acquisition expands Summit’s footprint and creates a new growth platform for Summit in the attractive British Columbia market.

Mainland operates two quarries and four river-served aggregates distribution depots. Mainland’s team, led by Ted Carlson and Ewan Moir, will remain in place to manage and develop the business as part of the Summit group of companies.

“We are very happy to welcome Mainland and its employees to Summit. Mainland is a great company with a long history of supplying aggregates throughout Vancouver and Lower Mainland," said Summit CEO Tom Hill. "We are excited about this expansion into western Canada and look forward to working with the Mainland team and Carlson family in this new market for Summit.”

Mainland President, Ted Carlson, added, “We are delighted to join Summit as we enter the next phase of Mainland’s development. We believe there is a great fit between Mainland and Summit and we look forward to continuing to provide our many valued customers with the highest quality aggregates and service for many years to come.”
