World Cement,

Cemex USA has begun operations at a new rail-linked distribution terminal in Commerce City, Colorado. The new terminal strengthens the company’s position in the state and the Denver Metro area.

“Our customers in Denver have been requesting a more convenient way to pick up our products,” said Juan Castillo, Vice President Commercial – South Central Region at Cemex. “The new distribution terminal in Commerce City delivers on that.”

The new terminal is serviced by an existing rail line out of the company’s Lyons cement plant. It has a silo capacity of 5000 short t and houses type II portland cement.

“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,” said Frank Craddock, Executive Vice President – Commercial and Public Affairs at Cemex.

“The addition of this terminal allows us to address the construction needs of our customers for years to come,” Craddock continued.

Operations at the terminal began on 21 September. With the addition of the Denver terminal, the company now operates three cement sites in Colorado, including the Lyons cement plant in Longmont, north of Denver, and the Florence cement terminal to the south.
