Production facilities: York plant

The York plant is located in Pennsylvania and has as annual production capacity of 140 thousand tons. It is known for being one of the first cement plants in the world to produce white Portland cement.

The plant was built by Medusa Cement in 1907 and it has celebrated over 110 years of production. The current white cement production was inaugurated in 1962. The plant was bought by LWCC from Medusa Cement in 1982. Since then several changes have been made to improve plant efficiency and quality and to meet environment standards.

The plant manufactures various products including Types I and III cement as well as Type N and S Masonry cement.

Personnel at the York Plant pride themselves on their excellent safety record for which they have won many awards over the years.

Production facilities: Waco Plant

The Waco plant is located in Texas and has as annual production capacity of 140 thousand tons.

The plant was built in 1927 as Atlas Cement and then acquired by US Steel forming Universal Atlas Cement. The white line was added and inaugurated in 1969. In 1980, HeidelbergCement Group purchased the plant as part of its acquisition of the Universal-Atlas Cement Division of U.S. Steel, and merged the operation with the Lehigh White Cement Company. Grey cement plant was shut down and white cement became the core manufacturing product. Over the years numerous investments have been made to improve production throughput and efficiency and to meet environmental standards.

The plant manufactures various products including Type I cement along with Type N and S Masonry cement.

Waco plant employees have earned numerous safety awards, making the Waco plant one of the safest cement plants in the industry.
