Crafco expands capabilities with strategic acquisition
Crafco has acquired Telfer Pavement Technologies’ (TPT) Anderson, CA, operations, gaining another supply center to service its growing business. The move augments Crafco’s pavement preservation lineup while bolstering its presence across the west coast.
Through the addition, Crafco will offer an array of paving fabrics, shade cloths, geogrids, gabions, and erosion-control materials, helping the company grow into the construction industry and related markets in that region. It will also expand its popular geocomposites/geosynthetics lineup. The previous TPT–Anderson unit will stock more Crafco products and give customers access to all Crafco materials and equipment. The 8,000-square-foot facility on 1.25 acres will be rebranded as a Crafco Supply Center.
“TPT–Anderson has built a solid platform and exceptional reputation,” said Don Brooks, President of Crafco. “Integrating this business unit into Crafco will give our customers new synergies and purchasing efficiencies, while ensuring they continue to get the quality solutions they need to best manage their pavement preservation initiatives.”
Founded in 1976, Crafco is the world’s leading manufacturer in quantity and diversity of packaged pavement preservation products for asphalt and concrete, such as hot-applied crack sealants, sealcoat, silicone joint sealants, hot-applied mastics, waterproofing systems, geocomposites, and cold-mix for pavement and bridge deck repair. Crafco is headquartered in Chandler.
