Consistent with a global rebranding its German parent company announced last fall, Lehigh Hanson Inc. enters 2023 as Heidelberg Materials, a new identity for the cement, aggregate and ready mixed concrete producer’s corporate office and core Lehigh Cement and Hanson Aggregates businesses. A majority of the company’s other subsidiaries in the U.S. and Canada will adopt the new banner in the coming months.
The evolution from Lehigh Hanson reflects Heidelberg Materials’ much broader and innovative approach to serving customers and becoming the industry leader in sustainability and digital solutions, management notes. Although the Heidelberg name is more than 150 years old and often associated just with cement, Heidelberg Materials reflects the organization’s heavy building materials industry expertise.
“This is a major step change for our company, both globally and here in North America,” affirms Heidelberg Materials North America CEO Chris Ward. “We are thrilled to begin this transformation in North America and continue our global journey to grow our business beyond cement and aggregates and become the most sustainable company in the sector.”
