Barrette Sold to MoistureShield Parent CRH

European conglomerate CRH, parent company of Oldcastle and MoistureShield, has agreed to buy Barrette Outdoor Living for $1.9 billion.

Ohio-based Barrette, a provider of residential fencing and railing solutions, has 14 locations across North America and is sold through retailers, home centers and lumberyards. Last year, Barrette reported profit before tax of $79 million and gross assets of $1.2 billion.
