Quarries acquired by Coco Paving Group
Coco Paving Group has bought a number of quarries.
Coco Paving Group has recently been in business negotiations with a number of firms and has revealed it has completed the acquisition of several quarries.
It now owns Reeb Quarry in Niagara, Barbara Ann McCarthy Quarry in Simcoe and Badgeley Island Quarry in Ontario's Sudbury region.
The firm is a family-owned and operated business that is led by Nina and William Coco and their children Jenny and Rocky.
It owns more than 31 asphalt plants throughout Quebec and Ontario and has more than 1,700 members of staff.
Chief executive officer Jenny Coco said the acquisitions have enabled the firm to "expand its vertical integration in Ontario" and has strengthened its position as a "full service heavy construction company together with a competent team".
Rocky Coco, president of the enterprise, said the firm is Ontario's "largest asphalt producer and road paving contractor" following the acquisition of the Quebec and Ontario heavy construction and asphalt division of Lafarge.
