Holcim US is bringing its rebrand initiative back to its hometown of Chicago, uniting legacy operations in the Greater Chicago Area, according to the company.
Former Lafarge operations in the Greater Chicago Area include aggregate sites in Joliet, Lemont, Romeoville, Summit, North Aurora, Algonquin, South Elgin, Elburn, McHenry, Sheridan, and Newark, a slag grinding facility in South Chicago and cement terminals around Chicago. Holcim US employs more than 400 people in the Greater Chicago Area.
“Right in the backyard of our company headquarters, we’re excited the Greater Chicago Area operations will now be recognized as Holcim. Customers will continue to experience the same quality products and services they expect from us today, but now have access to a larger network of services and innovation,” said Randy Gaworski, senior vice president and general manager, North Central Region. “This is one more step in our journey to create a more sustainable world as a trusted leader in decarbonizing the building industry.”
In March 2022, the corporate US headquarters of the global building materials provider, located in Chicago, was among the first worldwide to launch its rebrand, followed by subsequent regional transitions in operations throughout the East Coast, Mid-Atlantic, Mountain and Southern United States.
With these Chicago area operational facilities now included, approximately 75% of U.S. cement, aggregate and ready-mix operations have transitioned to the Holcim name, working together to build progress for people and the planet.
