Summit Completes Argos Takeover

Summit Materials successfully completed its $3.2 billion merger with Argos North America, the U.S. operations of Cementos Argos, after its shareholders overwhelmingly voted to approve certain proposals related to the transaction.

“Today, we are excited to begin a new chapter at Summit Materials,” said Anne Noonan, Summit Materials president and CEO. “As we transition into the integration phase, I want to start by welcoming our new Argos colleagues into the Summit family. Together, we now have an unrivaled, materials-dominant platform featuring significant scale and an advantaged geographic footprint, and our talent-rich team is laser focused on delivering our synergy commitments and industry-leading returns for our shareholders.

“I want to thank our Board of Directors, our shareholders, and the employees across our footprint for their unwavering support and commitment through this process and we look forward to our bright future together.”

The merger creates the fourth-largest cement platform in the United States and accelerates Summit’s “Elevate Summit” strategy, enhancing the company’s materials-led approach and positioning it for even greater success with a national footprint and significantly improved scale.
