Cemex USA has extended distribution of Type II portland cement from its Lyons plant in northern Colorado with the opening of a rail-served, 5,000-ton capacity terminal in Commerce City.
“Our customers in Denver have been requesting a more convenient way to pick up products, and the new terminal delivers,” says Cemex Vice President Commercial – South Central Region Juan Castillo. “Cemex is committed to providing a superior customer experience, everywhere, every time, and this is one of the ways we’re showing that commitment.”
“Denver and the surrounding Front Range communities have seen incredible construction growth over the past several years,” adds Executive Vice President – Commercial & Public Affairs Frank Craddock. “The addition of this terminal allows us to address the construction needs of our customers for years to come.”
The Commerce City facility affords the producer a cement distribution footprint across the state of Colorado, from the Lyons mill in the north, through Denver, to its Florence terminal in the south.
