It is part of our strategy of disciplined growth and increasing shareholder returns.”

Cemex’s Pacific Northwest Materials Business includes seven aggregate quarries, five ready mix concrete plants and two asphalt operations. LehighHanson will fully integrate all the operations into its current network thereby broadening its position in the Pacific Northwest area.
