USA: Ash Grove production suspensions
Published: 22 October 2010

Ash Grove Cement Company has announced plans to alter operations at nine manufacturing plants in the Midwest and Western United States due to adverse economic conditions that continue to affect the entire U.S. cement industry.

Ash Grove will temporarily suspend production at the plants as inventories continue to rise and seasonal demand is projected to decrease due to the onset of winter conditions. Product shipments to current and prospective customers will not be affected as Ash Grove will draw from inventories built over the past several months.
