US tax legislation will reduce rates for construction firms

Strengthening economic conditions supported by tax reform will play key roles in the demand for concrete and other key construction materials for needed rehabilitation of existing projects as well as new construction.

CalPortland will be one of the US companies benefiting, and will be able to provide critical materials required to improve the quality of life and to help build and rebuild America.

The tax reform has encouraged economic momentum, increasing jobs and allowing CalPortland to invest in its business throughout western US.

“We are excited about the future.
