Strategy in Action

CRH in Americas

We operate across all 50 US states, 9 Canadian provinces and in the Southeast region of Brazil.

Our Americas operations comprise Materials and Products divisions. In Materials, we are the number one producer of asphalt, the second largest producer of aggregates and the third largest producer of readymixed concrete in North America. Our Products operations, with their national footprint and broad product range, are the leading supplier of concrete products and architectural glazing systems in North America.

Our strategy in the Americas is to build strong regional leadership positions. Our Materials business is underpinned by well-located long-term aggregates reserves, and with 55% exposure to infrastructure, we are the leading supplier of product to highway repair and maintenance in the US. Our Products businesses are principal suppliers to the residential and non-residential demand segments and are well-placed to grow as economic recovery takes hold.

Approximately 42,800 people are employed by CRH in the Americas across c.1,750 locations.
