January 19, 2021

ATLANTA – Oldcastle APG has broadened its manufacturing footprint with the acquisition of 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 midwestern United States. As a co-packing partner, CST’s product offerings fit into Oldcastle APG’s existing product portfolio, strengthening manufacturing capabilities and improving 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.
