Lehigh Hanson plans a Q1 2023 transition to Heidelberg Materials, following German parent company HeidelbergCement AG’s adoption of the new banner, effective September 20. Heidelberg Materials represents “a brand with global reach and focus on sustainability, digitalization and leadership in the building materials industry,” management notes. In North America, it will unify—and gradually succeed—Lehigh Portland Cement Co. and sister legacy brands to better serve cement, aggregate and concrete customers; engage local communities; and, drive the sustainable and circular economy.
“This is a major step for our company, both globally and here in North America,” says Lehigh Hanson President and CEO Chris Ward, who also serves on the Heidelberg Materials Managing Board. “I am thrilled to lead this transformation in North America and take the next steps in our global journey to grow our business beyond cement and aggregates and become the most sustainable company in the sector.”
