Vulcan Materials Acquires Shamrock Materials


Vulcan Materials acquired Petaluma, Calif.-based Shamrock Materials, a six-decade-old company and one of the largest suppliers of concrete and paving materials to San Francisco's North Bay area.

Shamrock Materials owns ready-mix plants and a quarry and sells a diverse line of concrete accessories and building materials, as well as masonry, stone products and landscaping materials.

With Shamrock, Vulcan Materials picked up California concrete, rock, sand and gravel facilities in Sonoma, Napa and Marin counties, company spokeswoman Atisthan Roach said. That includes ready-mix plants in San Rafael, Petaluma, Santa Rosa, Cloverdale and Napa; building-materials sites in Cotati and San Rafael; a sand and gravel outlet in Cloverdale; and a materials depot on Landing Way along the Petaluma River.

The Shamrock deal, signed March 20, was one of three acquisitions in California and Tennessee that Birmingham, Ala.-based Vulcan closed in the first quarter of this year. Vulcan recently announced the purchase of Aggregates USA, also based in Birmingham.

The Shamrock name will remain, according to the North Bay Business Journal, and Vulcan hired many of its employees.

Jeff Nehmans was promoted from operations chief to vice president and general manager, reporting to Glendale-based Western Division President Brock Lodge.
