Peter Tonn and Jason Alderink, founders and owners of Silt Sock, expressed their enthusiasm for the merger: “We are excited to join forces with MKB Company and look forward to continuing to provide best-in-class products to our customers nationwide. Silt Sock has been an innovator and regional leader in the erosion control space since 2007, and we are proud to have our product lines and locations be a part of a national manufacturing platform”.
