CEMEX, a global building materials company, announced today the opening of the company’s first admixture blending plant in the United States to provide CEMEX’s nearby ready-mix plants with products for regular as well as high-performance concrete applications.
CEMEX USA President Ignacio Madridejos and other company representatives were at the new 21,000 square-foot facility in Brooksville, Fla., Wednesday to celebrate the opening of the plant. When fully-operational, the plant will service CEMEX’s nearly 160 ready-mix facilities throughout its Florida and Mid-South Regions.
“This blending plant produces specialized admixtures developed by CEMEX, and therefore, enables us to create concrete mixtures that differentiate us in the marketplace,” said CEMEX USA President Ignacio Madridejos. “The centralized location of the facility ensures we can deliver those unique admixtures to the facilities that need it, providing our ready-mix customers with exceptional value-added products and allowing our plants to be ready for any request.”
Admixtures developed and produced include a full family of products, such as normal and high range water reducers, setting accelerators and retarders, air-entraining agents and specialty products, all blended using a state-of-the-art automated system.
The Brooksville blending plant is the first of three CEMEX admixture plants scheduled to open in the U.S. CEMEX plans to open additional plants in Texas and California at existing sites in the coming months.
