Beginning in January 2023, Lehigh Hanson and the majority of our affiliated North American brands will be transitioning to unify under one brand: Heidelberg Materials. Lehigh Cement is now in the process of rebranding.
As we transition to Heidelberg Materials, our focus continues to be on what we do best—heavy building materials—and delivering a premier customer experience. By joining forces across North America, we will be stronger than ever—driving change and transforming our industry.
Lehigh Cement Company
The majority of our cement is used in the production of ready mixed concrete. Our cement is also used in paving applications, concrete pipe, masonry products, oil and gas drilling, precast concrete structures, and soil stabilization.
An International Company with Local Roots
Lehigh Cement Company began as a single-mill operation in Ormrod, Pennsylvania, in 1897. As the demand for concrete increased in the early twentieth century, the company thrived, making us a pillar of the many communities around us, bringing employment and economic benefit to small towns and big cities for more than 120 years. Over the years, a strategy of acquisitions, modernization and increased productivity propelled the company to the position of one of the leading providers of cement in the United States. Coplay Cement, founded in 1872 in the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania, was the very first producer of Portland cement in North America and later became Essroc Cement Corporation which is now a part of Lehigh Cement Company.
In 1977, HeidelbergCement, one of the world’s leading producers of cement and ready mixed concrete, established a presence in the United States with the acquisition of the Lehigh
Cement Company. HeidelbergCement acquired its Canadian operations in 1993 and currently maintains a very strong position in the country with three modern cement plants. Our Canadian cement production facilities, located in British Columbia, Alberta,
Quebec and Ontario, are supported by strategically located cement distribution terminals with customers throughout the market area.
