Lehigh Hanson manufactures a variety of cements under the Lehigh brand. With plants and distribution terminals located across the U.S. and Canada, Lehigh and its affiliated companies are among the leading producers of cement in North America.
Cement is often confused with concrete. Cement is a finely ground, usually grey colored mineral powder. When mixed with water, cement acts as a glue to bind together the sand, gravel and crushed stone to form concrete, one of the most durable and widely used construction materials in the world.
Lehigh and its affiliated companies produce gray cement, white cement, custom colored cement and blended cement. The majority of our cement is used in the production of ready mixed concrete. But our cement is also used in the manufacturing of precast concrete products, pipes and blocks and in the oil well industry.
