Cemex USA announced that its new rail-served cement distribution terminal in Commerce City, Colo., began operations on September 21, 2017. The new terminal provides Cemex with a footprint across the state of Colorado, from its Lyons plant in the north, through Denver, to its Florence Cement Terminal in the south.
“Our customers in Denver have been requesting a more convenient way to pick up our products, and the new distribution terminal in Commerce City delivers on that,” says Cemex Vice President Commercial – South Central Region Juan Castillo, in a press release. “Cemex is committed to providing a superior customer experience, everywhere, every time, and this is one of the ways we’re showing that commitment.”
The new Denver Cement Terminal is serviced by an existing rail line from its Lyons Cement Plant and has a silo capacity of 5,000 tons. It houses type II portland cement, precast, and masonry products for a variety of construction projects throughout the state, including roadway bridges and pavements and more.
“Denver and the surrounding Front Range communities have seen incredible construction growth over the past several years, and we’re seeing increased demand for building products,” says Cemex Executive Vice President – Commercial & Public Affairs Frank Craddock in the press release. “The addition of this terminal allows us to address the construction needs of our customers for years to come.”
“Our cement helps create the foundations of our communities in Colorado, and now that we have a facility in the Denver area, it’s easier than ever for our customers to get the cement they need, right when they need it,” says Cemex Senior Sales Manager – Cement Kelly Mayo in the press release.
“Everything we do at CEMEX revolves around our customers — from producing quality products, to providing exceptional service so they can achieve their business goals,” adds Cemex USA President Ignacio Madridejos in the press release. “We are here to deliver value for our customers, in Colorado and across the United States.”
