What’s Santa bringing you this season? For Layton Construction and STO Building Group, it’s a big fat merger. The two companies announced last week that Layton and STO will merge by the end of the year. New York-based STO, previously known as Structure Tone Organization, will use the merger to expand its geographic area and enter new sectors, such as industrial and healthcare.

Financial information concerning the merger has not been disclosed, but Layton will retain its name and logo, and the Layton leadership team will retain ownership of the company and their leadership positions. The companies said the merger will create the fourth largest company in the United States.
