CEMEX USA hosted its first California Building Materials Forum on 10 May in Walnut Creek, California, bringing more than 80 clients together for discussions on industry trends, sharing best practices, and the future of the industry. The event was the third forum hosted by the company since 2017.

“CEMEX is consistently working to build a better future in California, whether we are supporting infrastructure projects or providing products for skyscrapers that will stand for decades,” said CEMEX USA Regional President – West Region, Eric Wittmann. “Our customers face many of the same issues, and when we can arm them with additional information we have learned, we can work as an industry to find solutions to those common pain points like staffing and driver shortages.”

Presentations covered topics from enhancing safety to current digital trends and staffing in tight labour markets. Ed Sullivan, Senior Vice President and Chief Economist at the Portland Cement Association also provided an outlook on potential growth over the next few years.

CEMEX USA operates 11 cement plants, more than 50 distribution terminals, 50 aggregates quarries, and nearly 270 ready-mixed concrete plants. It has contributed building materials to some of the largest construction projects in California and is currently supplying the new Salesforce Tower in San Fransisco, the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, and the widening of the 405 Freeway in Los Angeles. Further forums are expected to be held in markets across the US throughout 2018.
