ATLANTA, Dec. 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Oldcastle APG, a CRH company, has acquired the recycling and mulch operations of South Jersey Agriculture Products (SJAP), a leading regional manufacturer of lawn and garden products located in southern New Jersey. A long-time co-packing partner, SJAP fits seamlessly into Oldcastle APG’s existing portfolio, elevating Oldcastle APG’s manufacturing capabilities in the soil and mulch product categories. Made entirely from recycled materials, SJAP’s lawn and garden products not only improve outdoor aesthetics, but also promote soil health and biodiversity in outdoor areas.
Supporting its strategy to provide integrated end-to-end solutions to customers across the country, Oldcastle APG’s acquisition of SJAP’s recycling and mulch operations enables increased production capacity and market share growth in the desirable Mid-Atlantic region, augmenting its expansion into the lawn and garden category. This move follows notable acquisitions made by Oldcastle APG to supplement its presence in the landscape materials space. Shortly after acquiring Buckeye Resources in 2019, Oldcastle APG acquired B&B Bedding and CST in 2020 – all of which enhanced its lawn and garden position across the Midwest.
“We are excited to continue growing our Lawn & Garden business in the Mid-Atlantic region with the addition of SJAP’s recycling and mulch operations to the APG family,” said Tim Ortman, President, Oldcastle APG. “SJAP’s complementary product offering, high-quality manufacturing and strategic geographic position will help strengthen our ability to best serve our customers in this area.”
The acquisition was finalized in December 2021.
