GCC commissions Rapid City plant expansion
21 December 2018

Mexican cement producer Grupo Cementos de Chihuahua (GCC) has announced the expansion of its Rapid City, South Dakota cement plant became operational, adding 440,000tpa capacity to the existing plant.

The expansion of the Dacotah cement plant began in 2016, with a total investment of around USD105m. The expansion increases the plant’s production capacity to 1.167Mta and is expected to reduce variable production costs.

Earlier this year, GCC acquired the 0.3Mta Trident cement plant in Three Forks, Montana, from CRH, adding to its other facilities at Tijeras, New Mexico; Odessa, Texas; Pueblo, Colorado; and Rapid City, South Dacotah, bringing the company’s US capacity total to 3.5Mta.
