ATLANTA — Oldcastle APG has acquired CST, a regional manufacturer of lawn and garden products, including bagged and bulk mulches and soils.
Founded in 2010 and headquartered in Elk River, Minnesota, CST supplies lawn and garden products to retail and independent customers throughout the Midwest. As a co-packing partner, CST’s product offerings fit into APG’s existing product portfolio, the company announced, adding that CST will strengthen manufacturing capabilities and improve regional product availability.
“Our lawn and garden business has experienced exponential growth fueled by increasing demand in the home remodeling space,” said Oldcastle APG president, Tim Ortman. “The acquisition of CST supports the strategic growth plans of our lawn and garden segment by enhancing our ability to meet the needs of customers throughout the Midwest region.”
The acquisition was finalized in late December 2020 and follows several recent strategic purchases by Oldcastle APG, including Midwestern mulch and soil manufacturers B&B Bedding and Buckeye Resources.
