“This is a very exciting time for Summit Materials and Continental Cement Co. We have a clear and focused vision; strategy; commitment to our markets, and strong values of safety, integrity, sustainability and inclusivity that will drive growth and improved performance. We are also committed to pioneering long-term sustainability practices, including implementing the sale of portland-limestone cement (PLC) at all Continental locations. It has been incredible working with Tom and the Continental leadership team,” continued Loomes. “I’m looking forward to supporting the hard-working employees and customers at the center of this important work, as well as the Hannibal and Davenport communities as we continue to grow Continental Cement and provide the infrastructure that our communities and economies need to build a better tomorrow.”
