Lafarge Canada has acquired the Mathers' St-Eustache quarry and asphalt operations in Quebec. The investment will further complement Lafarge's aggregates network and reinforce the company's position as a solutions provider in the region. The deal reiterates the company's 2025 strategy to expand its aggregates business through acquisitions of pits, quarries, docks, and depots in high-growth markets.
"Today is a historical day at Lafarge Canada. This is the largest aggregates acquisition in Eastern Canada for Lafarge in over a decade and represents an opportunity to integrate an established business, with strong community roots and a history of responsible operation, into our Lafarge Aggregates family," says David Redfern, president and CEO at Lafarge Canada (East). "Quebec is a dynamic and exciting market with high growth projections supported by current and future necessary infrastructure developments. This is only the beginning - we are thrilled and looking forward to advancing our sustainable growth strategy founded on our principles of environmental stewardship and operational excellence."
"At Holcim, we are dedicated to constantly growing and evolving our business. Welcoming the Mathers' St-Eustache Quarry and Asphalt operations with over 60 years experience and more than 80 employees to Lafarge Canada is a privilege," says Toufic Tabbara, region head at Holcim North America. "This bolt-on acquisition adds the largest crushed stone quarry in Quebec and expands our industry-leading position in the circular economy with recycled concrete and recycled asphalt production. This new structure will provide our customers with a comprehensive aggregates and now asphalt solutions portfolio in the Montreal region – suitable for all construction projects."
"We are very proud of what we have built throughout the years with Mathers' St-Eustache Quarry and Asphalt operations. It has been a very rewarding experience for my family to be able to see the businesses grow," says Brigitte Mathers, Mathers Group, president and member of the Board of Directors.
