A large concrete pumping business has acquired three South Carolina companies, including two from the Charleston region, as part of an expansion of its Southeast operations.

Denver-based Brundage-Bone Concrete Pumping Inc. announced this week it has purchased A.J. Concrete Pumping LLC and Kenyon Concrete Pumping Inc. Both were headquartered in Summerville. They now operate as Brundage-Bone South Carolina.

Terms of the sales were not disclosed.

Also, this week, Brundage-Bone announced the acquisition of Action Concrete Pumping Inc., which was based in Greenville with operations in Knoxville, Tenn., Birmingham, Ala., and Augusta, Ga.

The deals expand Brundage-Bone’s Southeast footprint from its previous Atlanta and Nashville locations.

“This area has become a highly attractive growth market given strong demographic trends and robust economic fundamentals in the region,” CEO Bruce Young said in a written statement.
