Harrison Gypsum, a vertically integrated producer and processor of minerals and aggregates, has acquired The Gravel Company LLC. The company will do business as ACG Materials.

Harrison Gypsum, based in Norman, Okla., mines, mills, processes and distributes minerals and aggregates including gypsum, anhydrite, limestone, sand, gravel and downstream food, pharmaceutical and plaster products in the Southwest.
