US Representative Steve Daines toured the Ash Grove Cement plant in Montana City, Montana, on 19th August 2014. The plant supplies cement for infrastructure and other construction projects throughout Montana and the northwest region, employing 79 people and supporting an additional 800 local jobs.
Steve Daines is the US Congressman for Montana and an influential member of committees such as the Committee on Transportation & Infrastructure and the Committee on Natural Resources. Ash Grove’s Montana City plant manager said: “Congressman Daines has been a strong supporter of American cement producers since his election to Congress. His interest in experiencing the cement manufacturing process firsthand demonstrates his commitment to cement manufacturing in Montana and across the country.”
The tour, which was hosted in part by the Portland Cement Association (PCA), included an overview of the cement manufacturing process, followed by a walk-through of the plant.
