Mitchell Plant Hosts 2024 Tech Week

As part of one of the world's largest integrated manufacturers of building materials and solutions, Heidelberg Materials North America has access to a broad range of technical resources across the globe. This provides us with a knowledge and talent base that is one of the best in the industry. 

We are pleased to be able to leverage the knowledge and experience of our team members to provide learning opportunities and training events for our employees and customers to help them achieve their goals and be more successful at what they do.

A great example of this in action is our annual Tech Week, where our Cement Technical Services and Material Quality Control teams from across North America meet to learn about emerging trends and technologies, discuss sustainability and digital innovations and share best practices.

This year, the meeting was kicked off by Phil Redmond, Senior Vice President, Global Competence Center Aggregates & Asphalt, and was hosted at the new state-of-the-art cement plant in Mitchell, Indiana. The agenda for the week included codes and standards developments, digital opportunities, sustainable product developments and marketing, recycled aggregates, an overview and outlook on SCMs (slag, fly ash and emerging technologies) and future-proofing our business through a focus on sustainability & digitalization. The team also toured the new Mitchell cement plant and learned about transformational projects underway throughout the company.

“Tech Week is a great opportunity for our technical services and quality control experts across our product lines to meet, learn and collaborate with their peers and colleagues from other areas of the business,” said Lori Tiefenthaler, Sr. Director of Marketing for Heidelberg Materials North America. “This year was especially rewarding with the strong focus on transforming our business through our digital and sustainability initiatives and challenging our teams to further engage with each other, sales and operations and our customers.”
