Texas Lehigh Joins SCA

The Slag Cement Association (SCA) announced the addition of Texas Lehigh Cement Co. as its newest member. 

Texas Lehigh, a joint venture between Heidelberg Materials North America and Eagle Materials, will be starting production at a new slag cement facility in Houston, Texas, this summer. The new facility strengthens Texas Lehigh’s cementitious footprint in the fast-growing Texas market while meaningfully reducing the carbon intensity of its product portfolio.

“We are thrilled to have the Texas Lehigh Cement Company join the Slag Cement Association,” stated Nick Brimley, marketing director of SCA. “Their new facility in Houston is a clear indication of the growing demand for slag cement in the concrete industry.”

“We are pleased to be members of the Slag Cement Association,” added David Sobczak, vice president of sales & marketing for Texas Lehigh Cement Co. “We look forward to working with the SCA and leveraging the excellent educational and promotional resources as we develop the Texas market to integrate more slag into concrete mixtures and push for more sustainable construction.”

The Slag Cement Association is an organization of companies that produce and ships slag cement in the United States; these shipments represent more than 95% of all slag cement used in U.S. concrete.
