Boral is selling its US Concrete & Quarries business for $US127 million as it narrows its focus on building products in North America.

The company said the Colorado construction materials business had performed well, but it was non-core to Boral’s operations and the time was right to realise its value.

Boral expects to make a pre-tax profit on the sale to to Brannan Sand and Gravel Company of $US45 million, which will be included in its financial results for the current financial year, and said the proceeds will be used to reduce debt.
