Titan America’s subsidiary, Carolinas Cement Company, plans to establish a cement packaging facility at an existing storage and handling terminal in Castle Hayne, New Hanover County, USA. At present, the terminal at Castle Hayne stores and distributes cement produced at the Roanoke cement plant, which it receives via rail. The bagging facility will allow the plant to pack the cement in bags, enhancing handling, storage and distribution efficiency both onsite and for customers.
Carolinas Cement Company has applied to New Hanover County for a building permit. An existing air quality permit issued by the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources Division of Air Quality would cover the new facility, which will not include any manufacturing or processing.
The project, which represents an investment of US$5 million, would create two permanent jobs and ten construction jobs.
