“We couldn’t be more thrilled. For decades, we’ve sought a company that agrees with our vision, aligns with our values, and can help us accelerate our growth strategy. Today, we found it in Holcim.

We are excited to further strengthen the Malarkey brand and legacy and welcome all employees and sites to the Holcim family.”
From Bill Thorpe, CEO at Malarkey, “Consumers increasingly refuse to concede sustainability for performance. They want both. And we’ve long felt that we can lead this industry by delivering it. We’re excited that Holcim agrees, and appreciative that they see the value in retaining the employees, brands, and products that are responsible for our success to date.”
The sale is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2022.
