Shasta Industries announces the acquisition of FossilCrete, the industry leader in vertical concrete stamping systems based in Oklahoma City, Okla. The company will be operated along with its sister division, Xcel Surfaces, an innovator in the decorative concrete industry.
Andy Blake, manufacturing operations officer for Shasta Industries, will oversee the new business segment. Business operations and some manufacturing will move to Phoenix, Ariz., with secondary manufacturing and all new product development remaining in Oklahoma City. Former owner of FossilCrete, Stanton Pace, will become director of new product development and continue to provide technical assistance.
Shasta Industries plans to expand into niche markets of the decorative concrete industry, marketing nationally and internationally. FossilCrete was honored with the 2006 Experts’ Choice Award: Most Innovative Products in the decorative concrete category at the World of Concrete Show in Las Vegas.
