Officials are currently breaking ground on a new cement terminal on the waterfront in Elm Park, Staten Island, New York.
Staten Island Terminal LLC will be the state’s largest cement and aggregate deep water import terminal. Located at 2541 Richmond Terrace, the new facility will employ 72 jobs during construction of the facility and 125 people will work there permanently once its operational.
A new pier will accept ship deliveries of powdered cement. Each ship could bring in about 40,000t of cement. The cement would be distributed to ready-mix concrete companies throughout the area for use in construction projects.
Currently, the terminal trucks in its supplies of cement from Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley.
