CALGARY/SASKATOON, May 1, 2013 /CNW/ - BURNCO Rock Products Ltd has
acquired the business assets of Saskatoon's Taylor Concrete Group. This
acquisition gives BURNCO a permanent site in Saskatchewan and continues
their growth agenda.
Doug and Bernie Taylor, owners of Taylor Concrete Group, have been
providing quality products with personal care and service for over 30
years. When asked about the acquisition they stated: "We are very
pleased to welcome a 100 year old family business to carry on providing
exemplary service to customers in the Saskatoon area." Both have agreed
to stay with the business through a transition period.
Michael Powell, President of BURNCO Rock Products Ltd states, "Taylor
Concrete Group was attractive to us because their personal and business
values are similar to those of BURNCO. They have been exceptional to
work with over the duration of this acquisition process."
For the short-term, Taylor Concrete Group will run under the name,
Taylor Rock Products, a BURNCO Company. All employees are anticipated
to continue with the business. "When we go into new markets we prefer
to use local talent and not parachute in Calgary managers," says BURNCO
Rock Products Ltd CEO Scott Burns. "We intend to fully integrate with
the local community." BURNCO's desire is to run the business as a
successful supplier in the Saskatchewan market area.
BURNCO Rock Products Ltd is a fourth generation family business
established in Calgary in 1912 by James F. Burns. Today, BURNCO is
Canada's largest independent supplier of ready-mix concrete, a major
supplier of asphalt and aggregate products and operates Western
Canada's largest network of Landscape Centres.
