Pike Industries Acquires Two Maine Facilities
Pike Industries, Inc. has acquired the assets of Bruce A. Manzer, Inc. and North Country Concrete, LLC. Manzer is an integrated asphalt, aggregate, ready mix concrete and paving business headquartered in Farmington, Maine that consists of two asphalt plants, two sand & gravel pits, a portable crusher, a ready mix concrete plant. The company employs approximately forty people and focuses on key markets throughout Somerset, Franklin, and Oxford counties in Western Maine.
Pike’s acquisition of the Manzer facilities will enable Pike to expand its operations into the northwestern area of Maine. This region is expected to experience continuing growth fueled by the development of outdoor recreation areas, including several major ski resorts. In addition, the acquisition complements Pike’s existing operations in Maine by providing Pike with permanent plants in markets where Pike previously utilized portable plants.
The acquisition represents an opportunity to build upon Pike’s success in Maine by acquiring Manzer’s experienced management, strong relationships with the Maine DOT, and unique geographic footprint within the region. We are excited to welcome the Manzer Team to Pike, Americas Materials, and CRH, and are confident that the addition further enhances our ability to serve customers in this important market.
