Crane Materials Intl. (CMI), announced the acquisition of ￼Shoreline Plastics (SLP) vinyl sheet pile business including all related assets and intellectual property.
￼CMI is a global company headquartered in Atlanta with manufacturing facilities in Georgia and ￼Florida. The company manufactures and fabricates vinyl, fiber-reinforced polymer, and ￼aluminum sheet piling, aluminum pedestrian bridges, and marine docks.
