CRH plc have received regulatory approval for the acquisition of Kansas-based Ash Grove Cement Company.

The US Federal Trade Commission has now issued its consent order for the transaction and no further regulatory approvals are outstanding.

The transaction is expected to close this month (June), although CRH say there can be no assurance regarding the timing of the closing.
