Sunroc Acquires DePatco; Expands Presence in Idaho


Sunroc Corp., a subsidiary of Clyde Companies Inc., has acquired Idaho Falls-based DePatco, Inc. The acquisition of DePatco's assets will facilitate a strategic expansion into eastern Idaho for Sunroc, increasing its geographic footprint and product offering. The operations will continue doing business under the DePatco name.

DePatco is the largest locally owned and operated construction company in southeastern Idaho. Along with its nine gravel pits throughout Idaho and Wyoming, DePatco's construction services include grading, asphalt paving, concrete paving, utilities, and sand and gravel. With more than 40 years in operation, DePatco has grown to approximately 200 employees with a trusted reputation of excellence and quality customer service, the company stated.

Sunroc is a civil construction company that provides premier materials and services to the Intermountain West, including earthwork, utilities, grading and paving, as well as production and sales of masonry products, sand, gravel, asphalt and concrete.

"With an alignment in company values and construction services, this acquisition is a natural fit and important step in our growth. DePatco has built a great culture and reputation in the eastern Idaho market, and Sunroc operates with those same values and standards that DePatco is known for – continuing Clyde Companies' vision of 'Building a Better Community'," said Scott Okelberry, Sunroc president.

DePatco owners, members of the Stoddard family, will continue to be involved in the business.

"With their breadth and depth of experience, we are confident that Sunroc will improve upon the construction products and services that Depatco has established," said Greg Stoddard, president of DePatco.

"Sunroc is committed to building eastern Idaho communities as an engaged partner in the business community and construction space. We are excited to offer Sunroc's services to the area as we grow with the region," said Mark Elder, vice president of Sunroc's Idaho operations.

Since 1937, Sunroc has offered quality construction services to municipalities, state agencies, professional contractors throughout the Intermountain West. Sunroc provides time-tested materials and services, including ready-mix concrete, asphalt, sand and gravel, masonry, earthwork, utility construction and asphalt paving.
