Ingevity Corporation today announced that it has completed its previously disclosed acquisition of privately-owned Ozark Materials in an all-cash transaction valued at $325 million. Ingevity expects the acquisition to be immediately accretive to Ingevity’s earnings per share. The business will be included in Ingevity’s Performance Chemicals segment.

The company supplies specialty materials for roadway applications throughout the United States and Canada, for a customer base that includes state departments of transportation, civil and highway contractors, cities, universities and airports.
