We are the No. 4 cement producer in North America and a leader in Canada
Last year we produced 7.5 million tons of cement

Cement is a basic ingredient of concrete and mortar, and a consistent product is critical to the success of construction projects. Our network of companies means we are able to reliably meet our customers’ needs and exceed their expectations.

Each step in our cement manufacturing process is carefully checked by frequent tests and quality control analyses to make sure the product meets specifications.

Reducing Our Carbon Footprint

Because cement requires an energy-intensive manufacturing process, we have established company-wide initiatives to reduce our carbon footprint and incorporate reusable, recyclable material. We take these objectives seriously. Our customers, investors, and employees want to work for and with a company that does its part for the environment, and it’s simply the only way to do business.

A few of our carbon-reduction programs include:

  • Adding more fly ash to the blended mix, which decreases the amount of cement in the concrete
  • Continuing to brand and blend our mixes, which lowers production rates and uses less carbon dioxide
  • Using alternative fuels in our cement plants to decrease cement production costs, preserve fossil fuels, reduce waste and decrease the global greenhouse effect
  • Increasing the number of National Ready Mix Concrete Association (NRMCA) Green-Star certified plants
