Lehigh Hanson changed its brand name to Heidelberg Materials, effective immediately.
Previously announced in September 2022, the new identity goes into effect for the company’s corporate office and its core brands of Lehigh Cement and Hanson Aggregates. A majority of the company’s other subsidiaries in the U.S. and Canada will also make the transition to the new brand name in the coming months.
“This is a major step change for our company, both globally and here in North America,” said Chris Ward, president and CEO of Heidelberg Materials North America and member of the managing board of Heidelberg Materials. “We are thrilled to begin this transformation in North America today and continue our global journey to grow our business beyond cement and aggregates and become the most sustainable company in the sector.”
The new name will unify Lehigh Hanson’s many legacy brands and nearly 9,000 employees in North America to better serve its customers, engage the local communities and drive the sustainable and circular economy.
