OMAHA, Neb., Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Valmont Industries, Inc. (NYSE: VMI), a leading global provider of engineered products and services for infrastructure and mechanized irrigation equipment for agriculture, announced today the sale of Bilston Investments Proprietary Limited, a South African holding company acquired as part of the Delta plc acquisition. All the outstanding shares of Bilston were sold to three South African purchasers for a total purchase price of $30 million.
