Builds Depth Within Upper Midwest Manufacturing Footprint
We are broadening our manufacturing footprint with the acquisition of CST, a leading regional manufacturer of lawn and garden products, including bagged and bulk mulches and soils.
Founded in 2010 and headquartered in Elk River, Minnesota, CSTsupplies lawn and garden products to retail and independent customers throughout the Midwestern United States. As a co-packing partner, CST’s product offerings fit seamlessly into our existing product portfolio, strengthening manufacturing capabilities and improving regional product availability.
“Our lawn and garden business has experienced exponential growth fueled by increasing demand in the home remodeling space,” said Oldcastle APG President, Tim Ortman. “The acquisition of CST supports the strategic growth plans of our lawn and garden segment by enhancing our ability to meet the needs of customers throughout the Midwest region.”
The acquisition was finalized in late December 2020 and follows several recent strategic purchases, including midwestern mulch and soil manufacturers B&B Bedding and Buckeye Resources.
