On May 21, 2018, Hanes Geo Components, of Winston-Salem, N.C., announced the company had reached an agreement to acquire DDD Erosion Control Inc. of Ashburn, Ga.
“DDD Erosion Control is a leader in the manufacturing and distribution of Silt Fence, a core product segment for Hanes Geo Components,” John Dowdell, president of Hanes Geo Components, said in a prepared statement from Hanes. “In addition, their location in Ashburn, Ga., will improve our service capabilities throughout southern Georgia and into northern Florida.”
Jerry Greene, president of Hanes Companies, said in the statement from Hanes, “This acquisition is a continuance of our ongoing strategy to develop a North American distribution network for geotextile and erosion control products. Hanes Companies and our parent company, Leggett & Platt, are fully committed to growing our presence in this highly attractive market.”
The DDD Erosion Control team will continue to operate out of its current location. DDD Erosion Control’s founders, Don and Kelli Davis, will continue to lead the operations for Hanes.
“We are excited to join the Hanes team,” Don Davis said in the statement from Hanes. “Hanes will continue to make investments [that] will allow us to support our customers effectively while growing our core business.”
