Amid ramp up of its 2 million ton/year Port-Daniel–Gascons mill in eastern Quebec, McInnis Cement has outlined an Atlantic provinces distribution plan anchored on the acquisition of two CRH Canada terminals serving New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. McInnis will honor the facilities’ order log, integrate current staff, and—under a separate agreement—begin cement deliveries to CRH Canada terminals in Long Pond, Argentia and Corner Brook, Newfoundland this fall.
“With the addition of these terminals to our network, we are now able to secure a solid position in this market,” notes McInnis CEO Hervé Mallet. The Atlantic province facilities, he adds, join these charter U.S. and Canada distribution facilities: Providence, R.I., Bronx, N.Y., Oshawa, Ontario, and Sainte-Catherine, Quebec marine terminals plus New Richmond, Quebec railway transshipment station.
