Dayton Superior has acquired the stock of the Block Heavy and Highway Products Company from the W. G. Block Co. The Block Heavy and Highway Co. of Bettendorf, Iowa is a supplier of steel infrastructure products used principally in the construction and repair of concrete roads, highways, interstates, airports and distribution centers.
With a 27 year history, Block specializes in the manufacture and sale of welded and fabricated dowel assemblies, steel dowels, Transverse Bar Assemblies, and rebar baskets.
“We’re very excited about the addition of the Block Heavy and Highway business into our product portfolio,” said Rick Zimmerman, Dayton Superior president and chief executive officer. “Block will strengthen our presence in the highway construction market, and support our continued expansion into the infrastructure markets. This acquisition fully supports our increased focus on concrete highway and bridge projects.”
Dayton Superior will market the Block product lines with those currently marketed under the Dayton Superior Paving Products brand (previously known as American Highway Technology).
