Allan Myers, a heavy civil construction and materials company with locations throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, today announced the purchase of certain assets of the Daisy Construction and Edgemoor Materials companies, including two strategically located hot mix asphalt plants in Elkton, Md. and Wilmington, Del.
