World Cement,


The cement plant is visible from the west entrance of Port-Daniel–Gascons, Quebec: the soaring tower, the silos, and the marine terminal with its loading facilities reaching into the sea. Although located several kilometers from this seaside community, they are now part of the landscape. The topography of the site means that, from the centre of the municipality, there is no visual contact with the plant, and it is only in approaching the site that a better understanding of the scale of the industrial complex, whose construction was completed during the past few weeks, is gained.

I have the privilege of running this state-of-the-art cement plant and coordinating the efforts of the employee teams that now operate it. I know this plant by heart: I saw it rise out of the ground; I walk it every day, in length, width, and height; and above all, I plan to operate it to the best of its potential.
