TrueRock Holdings, Inc. Acquires and Rebrands Into Major North Carolina Infrastructure Development and Construction Firm

Access Newswire - For Immediate Release - September 7, 2023 – Monroe, North Carolina – TrueRock Holdings, Inc. (www.truerockholdings.com), announced today that effective immediately, it has acquired and rebranded the Boggs Group of Companies.

TrueRock Holdings, Inc. (“TrueRock”) is now a vertically integrated infrastructure development firm that develops, owns, and operates throughout North and South Carolina: 1) aggregate quarries and hot mix asphalt plants under its new brand TrueRock Materials, 2) a highly specialized trucking fleet which provides distribution support under its new brand TrueRock Logistics and 3) Heavy Highway, Civil and Private/Commercial construction operations under its new brand TrueRock Construction.

“Next year will mark our 30th year in business serving the people and businesses of the Carolinas. Since our business started, we have paved over 15,000 miles of roadways and we are proud that through our work, we have helped connect millions of families and businesses. As we grow from a Carolina based family-owned business into a broader regional firm, we felt that now was the perfect time to rebrand and consolidate our various businesses under one name which will allow us to leverage our unique assets and capabilities and grow for another 30 years. And with our vertically integrated business model, we believe we are ‘Building America’s Roadways from the Ground Up’” said David “Chris” Boggs, the Company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

“With $800 billion dollars of backlog of projects to repair deteriorating bridges and highways in the US, including $480 billion dollars in critical repair work, we believe that there is an urgent need for transportation infrastructure projects in the markets we currently serve and a massive opportunity to expand our operations into other neighboring States. We have built our success on a foundation of consistency and reliability and this focus will help continue to drive our success in the future,” said Mr. Boggs.

TrueRock employs over 500 team members and is now one of the largest infrastructure development and construction firms in the region. The Company employs team members in 25 counties and its clients include some of the Carolinas’ largest companies, such as home builder True Homes, Century Communities, FedEx, and Toyota.  The Company’s operations in central North Carolina, is heavily focused on providing development support to the “Carolina Core” which is the home to several of North Carolina’s Megasites – four of which (Toyota, Vinfast, Boom Supersonic and Wolfspeed) have announced plans to invest over $20 billion in economic development funds for the region.
