OREM, Utah, May 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Clyde Companies, Inc. announced today it has finalized an agreement to purchase the assets of Desert Deep Foundations, Inc., a Utah-based piling and shoring contractor. The assets will be used in a new Clyde Companies corporation, DDF, Inc. which will begin operations immediately.

Prior to the asset acquisition, Desert Deep Foundations specialized in driven piles, including: steel pipe, H-pile and PCPS concrete, as well as earth shoring, including: sheet piles, soldier piles, soil nailing and shotcrete. The company recently worked alongside W.W. Clyde & Co. in Ogden, Utah, providing pipe piles on the I-15; South Davis Operational Upgrades project.
