Our History

For more than a century, we’ve been supplying cement, aggregates, ready mixed concrete, asphalt and other building materials to markets throughout North America. Today, as a part of Heidelberg Materials, our reach and capabilities are more extensive than ever, and our brightest days are still ahead.


Lehigh Cement Company began as a single-mill operation in Ormrod, Pennsylvania, producing Portland cement. As the demand for concrete increased in the early 1900’s, the company thrived. Over the years, a strategy of acquisitions, modernization and increased productivity propelled the company to the position of one of North America’s leading providers of cement and construction materials.


Hanson Trust was formed in 1964 by James Hanson and Gordon White. It rapidly grew by acquisition and became a multinational concern with interests in chemicals, construction, energy, tobacco and other industries. Over the years, Hanson shifted its focus to construction materials and sold its non-core business. By 2006 Hanson had become the world’s largest producer of aggregates.


Heidelberg Materials, one of the world’s leading producers of cement and ready mixed concrete, established a presence in the United States with the acquisition of the Lehigh Cement Company.


In 1993, Heidelberg Materials acquired its Canadian operations. The U.S. and Canadian businesses become the company’s Area North America.


Heidelberg Materials acquired Hanson PLC in 2007, creating a multi-national provider of cement, aggregates, ready mixed concrete and other construction materials.


In 2016, Heidelberg Materials completed the acquisition of Italcementi. In North America, Essroc, a subsidiary of Italcementi that operated cement, ready mixed concrete and aggregate facilities, was integrated into the Lehigh Hanson businesses.


Lehigh Hanson becomes Heidelberg Materials in North America. In 2023 the company is uniting the entire North American family of brands under this new banner while remaining focused on what we do best: heavy building materials. The rebrand reflects a much broader and innovative approach to serving customers and leading the industry in sustainability and digital solutions.

Heidelberg Materials is committed to operating in a safe and environmentally responsible manner. Heidelberg Materials actively advocates for the use of resilient construction materials and supports sustainable construction practices.

We advocate for science-based research to drive innovation and deliver long-term results. Our labs are busy working on the next generation of sustainable building materials that will have a lower environmental footprint and bring us closer to our net zero goal. As we invest in research, the majority goes towards our goal of carbon neutral concrete by 2050. Our capital investments in more efficient equipment and new technology help us stay competitive and reduce our reliance on energy and water.

Heidelberg Materials is committed to supporting Green Building Councils and local and national industry trade associations to lead the development of sustainable solutions for built environments. We believe that a collaborative effort with stakeholders is a quicker path to developing new technologies that can make an immediate impact to lower Global Warming Potential (GWP). In 2020, Heidelberg Materials- North America made an investment in more bench marking and increased transparency for environmental impacts as we began publishing more product environmental product declarations(EPDs).

Heidelberg Materials- North America is pleased to announce it has successfully achieved Concrete Sustainability Council (CSC) certification for its Pacific Northwest concrete plants in Seattle and Bellevue, Washington. These locations were the first concrete producers in the U.S. to achieve CSC certification at the Silver level.
