Buzzi Unicem USA has announced the acquisition of a 30 000 t cement storage dome and distribution terminal from Ozinga Bros. Inc. The latest addition to the company’s extensive river-based terminal network is located in Joliet, Illinois.
Buzzi Unicem USA will immediately begin shipping Type-I/II low-alkali cement by barge from the company's newly expanded plant in Festus, Missouri. The Joliet terminal allows the company to significantly expand distribution in Illinois. Buzzi Unicem USA will continue to supply customers in the northern and central part of Illinois from its rail terminal located in Oglesby.
The company plans to install a self-service kiosk for 24/7 loading by early spring 2011.
The facility will be managed by Scott Richardson, an employee of Buzzi Unicem USA for 10 years.
