USA: Essroc-Lehigh acquisition

USA: Essroc-Lehigh acquisition
06 February 2017

Following a US$4.2bn acquisition deal in June 2016, Essroc's Nazareth plant in Pennsylvania will feature signs saying it is now part of Lehigh Cement Co.

The acquisition combined Lehigh Hanson Inc and Essroc Cement Corp, which were then owned by parent companies HeidelbergCement AG and Italcementi SpA, respectively. Now, HeidelbergCement AG is the owner of both Lehigh Hanson Inc and Essroc.

"For now the legal entity is still 'Essroc' and our operating permits still show 'Essroc,' but we have changed the signs to say 'Lehigh Cement Company' since that is the direction we are going with all of the Essroc cement operations," Jeff Sieg, director of corporate communications for Lehigh Hanson, said.

"We have not planned any significant changes at the moment and we remain focussed on supplying our customers in the market with quality products and service," Mr Sieg went on to say.
