14 CEMENT AMERICAS • Winter 2018 • www.cementamericas.com FEATURE L afarge, a member of LafargeHolcim, unveiled a new, state-of-the-art plant at its Ravena, N.Y., facility after a three-year, multi-million-dollar modernization project to sustainably supply the region's growing manufacturing and construction industries. The cement from the Ravena facil- ity supplies more than 1 million tons of locally produced product for high profile projects in the Northeast including One World Trade Center, the World Trade Center Memorial and Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. Throughout the project, the modernization of the Ravena facility maintained approximately 135 plant operation jobs, produced up to 800 construction jobs and generated more than $170 million to the local economy. A ceremonial rib- bon cutting was held on Sept. 21, 2017, which included a speaking program and plant tours. "By modernizing the plant, we have transformed it into an efficient, competitive and state-of-the-art facility that will allow us to meet the growing needs of our custom- ers and remain a strong partner to the community for the Looking to the Future Lafarge's Ravena Plant Completes Three-Year Modernization Project.
