ATLANTA, Ga., -- April 8, 2013 – Oldcastle Architectural has acquired Expocrete Concrete Products Ltd., giving North America’s largest producer of concrete masonry and hardscape products an increased presence in the high-growth region of western Canada.

Expocrete manufactures a diverse range of concrete hardscape, masonry and precast products that meet high standards in quality, safety and sustainability. The company operates seven manufacturing facilities in the Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, Saskatoon and Winnipeg markets.
