Oldcastle APG, a CRH Company, extended its geographic reach with the acquisition of B&B Bedding, a leading regional manufacturer of lawn and garden products. As a longtime co-packing partner, the company fits seamlessly into APG’s existing portfolio, providing additional depth to its manufacturing capabilities and product offerings. Derived from recycled valued woods and natural resources, B&B Bedding lawn and garden products are both aesthetically pleasing and environmentally safe.
Founded in 1984, B&B Bedding specializes in manufacturing bagged and bulk mulches and soils from facilities in Oskaloosa, Iowa, and McLean, Ill. The company supplies retail and independent customers throughout the Midwestern United States.
The acquisition follows several notable purchases by Oldcastle APG in both landscape materials and concrete products. In 2019, APG acquired Ohio mulch manufacturer Buckeye Resources, followed closely by the acquisitions of Allied Concrete Products, Abbotsford Concrete Products, and US MIX. While continuing to grow in scale, Oldcastle APG remains focused on broadening its scope and enhancing its product offerings to serve customers in their local markets.
“We look forward to enhancing APG’s geographic footprint to better service our customers throughout the Midwest with the acquisition of B&B Bedding,” said Oldcastle APG President Tim Ortman. “In addition to its manufacturing capabilities and industry expertise, the company’s product offering fits seamlessly with ours and will strengthen and complement our position in the lawn and garden segment.”
The deal was finalized in late June 2020.
