100th Anniversary of the Stockertown Plant

2016 marks the 100th anniversary of the Stockertown Plant, Pennsylvania. Although development was initially planned to begin in 1906, the financial panic of 1907 delayed construction until 1916. In August 1916, Hercules Cement was incorporated.

The Stockertown plant is today one of five operating cement plants in the Lehigh Valley, which at one time had more the 60 plants.

On 4 June 2016, a Plant Open House was held, with over 250 workers, retirees, families, friends and community leaders attending the event. Tours of the plant and the recently created environmental reserve, ‘The Hercules Meadow’, were conducted.

A custom magazine, ‘Stockertown Plant – A Hundred Years In The Making’ was developed to document the Plant’s history.
