McInnis Cement inaugurates plant
26 September 2017

Monday, 25 September saw the inauguration of the 2.3Mta McInnis Cement plant in Port-Daniel-Gascons, Canada. In the presence of more than 200 guests, primarily suppliers and subcontractors and McInnis employees, the chairman of the company’s board, Laurent Beaudoin, said: "We got there, factory, quarry, terminal. The cement plant that has been talked about for so long and that the Gaspésiens have waited with patience, this grand project is officially taking off. "

Recalling that its objective is "to make this cement plant on the cutting edge of technology the leader it deserves to be," and responding to environmentalists, who were kept away from the site of the plant by the Québec police, Laurent Beaudoin said that his company "raises the environmental standards of the industry. Cement will be one of the most responsible and the one whose ecological footprint will be the weakest. "

First plans for the plant were made some three decades ago and the project has come to the end of a long road. The plant produced its first cement in June 2017.
