10 • ROCK products • September 2017 I N D U S T RY N E W S IN THE KNOW "We are excited to further strengthen our position as the leading industrial mineral and aggregate producer in the Midwest," commented Paul Harrington, chief executive officer of ACG Materials. "Diamond Gypsum helps expand our presence in the STACK shale basin, one of the fastest growing energy markets in the U.S. We look forward to part- nering with Diamond Gypsum's strong employee base and building upon their reputation for unmatched product quality and customer service." Keval Patel, a managing director at H.I.G, said, "We are pleased to support ACG Materials in its acquisition of Diamond Gypsum and continue our success- ful track record of acquiring leading mining and processing operations in attractive, high-growth markets." Diamond Gypsum is the seventh add-on acquisition that ACG Materials has closed since H.I.G. acquired the com- pany at the end of 2012. FAST FACT Diamond Gypsum owns and operates a quarry in central Oklahoma and serves a diverse set of blue-chip customers with high-quality aggregate and processed gypsum products. FAST FACT Companies will provide environmentally friend- ly concrete to projects in Central California, including the high-profile California High-Speed Rail project. Outback Materials to Partner With CarbonCure Outback Materials has partnered with CarbonCure Technologies in order to provide environmentally friendly con- crete to projects in Central California, including the high-profile California High-Speed Rail project. This partner- ship solidifies Outback's commitment to help contribute to California's environmental targets, according to the company. "I think it's important for this industry to align with California's environmen- tal commitments by adopting greener technologies," said Outback Materials CEO Curtis Lovett. "Partnering with CarbonCure is an essential piece in doing our part to improve air quality and preserve the environment." Outback has been dedicated to pro- viding high-quality concrete from six local locations to the Central Valley for 50 years, and this new equipment will improve not only the environmental impact of the concrete they produce, but the overall integrity of the material, as well, the company stated. CarbonCure's technology, which will be installed in Outback's Fresno plant, chemically sequesters waste CO2 in the concrete during the manufacturing process. "It is truly an honor for CarbonCure have the opportunity to partner with a great producer like Outback Materials and to partake in an infrastructure project with the magnitude of the California High- Speed Rail," said CarbonCure CEO Robert Niven. "If CarbonCure's technology were used to produce the concrete for the rest of the first construction package, span- ning from Madera to Fresno, the carbon reductions would be equivalent to the amount of CO2 consumed by 3,200 acres of American forest over a year."
