Heidelberg Materials celebrated the grand opening of its newly expanded slag cement plant and terminal in Port Canaveral, Fla., on May 25.
Commissioned in 2004, the facility is currently the newest slag grinding plant in North America. Heidelberg Materials invested more than $24 million in a new roller press, which increases its grinding capacity to better support sustainable and resilient construction projects throughout Florida and nearby markets.
“Heidelberg Materials’ investment in the Port Canaveral slag cement facility is reflective of our commitment to supporting sustainable and resilient construction projects in the state of Florida and throughout the country,” said Heidelberg Materials President and CEO Chris Ward. “It is also aligned with our goal to significantly reduce our carbon footprint by 2030 and another milestone in our overall strategy to grow our portfolio of more sustainable products, technologies and customer-focused solutions on the path to Net Zero.”
