Eagle Materials to Double Capacity at Laramie

Eagle Materials will modernize and expand its Laramie, Wyo., cement plant and related distribution facilities as the company re-emphasizes its commitment to be the cement supplier of choice in the Mountain Region, including Denver and Salt Lake City markets. 

The modernized plant and an additional cement distribution facility in northern Colorado will incorporate state-of-the-art technology maximizing operating efficiencies, which will further strengthen Eagle’s low-cost producer position. The expansion will increase the Laramie plant’s annual capacity by 50% to 1.2 million tons of cement and is expected to reduce manufacturing costs by 25%.

Expected cost reductions from the modern kiln line will be generated by replacing the use of solid fuels with lower cost alternative fuels and natural gas, simplified maintenance programs, and improved operating efficiencies. Additionally, the CO2 intensity from the Laramie facility is expected to decline by nearly 20% once the project is complete. 

Startup is scheduled for the second half of 2026.
