Ronnie Pruitt has joined U.S. Concrete Inc. as senior vice president and chief operating officer, a new position charged with direct oversight of ready mixed, aggregate and ancillary operations in New York and New Jersey, Texas and Oklahoma, and California. His 20-plus years' industry experience was gained primarily at Dallas-based Texas Industries Inc., where he served as vice president of Cement Production and vice president of Sales & Marketing, Cement and Aggregates Divisions. Following the mid-2014 TXI-Martin Marietta Materials merger, Pruitt was named vice president of Cement Sales.
Separately, U.S. Concrete has acquired the Wantage Stone reserves, a site-development quarry with 80 acre land parcel plus mining rights to an additional 77 acres. The company has operated the Hamburg, N.J., deposit under lease agreement since October 2014, The operation will continue to enhance the company's ability to serve the northern New Jersey and New York metropolitan markets, owing to a combined 19 million tons of proven and permitted reserves, plus an equal volume of additional reserves not yet permitted. The reserve position and increased production capacity strengthens U.S. Concrete's mix of internally supplied aggregates plus shipments to new and existing customers.
