Lafarge Canada Inc's Brookfield, Nova Scotia cement works in Canada has celebrated its 50th anniversary, with employees, customers and the community gathering at a special event earlier this month to mark the milestone year.

During the event, plant manager, Scarth MacDonnell welcomed local speakers such as Joe Ballard, President of the Heritage Trust of Nova Scotia to reflect on the plant's contribution to the built environment in the Atlantic.  In addition, Bob Taylor, Mayor of Colchester County and Larry Harrison, MLA (Colchester-Musquodoboit Valley) reinforced the economic role of the works.

Lafarge Eastern Canada, CEO, Bruno Roux thanked employees for their commitment to health and safety noting that the site has just reached six years without a lost time accident. He emphasised Lafarge's pride in having contributed to building so many homes, buildings and roads that Atlantic Canadians use every day.
