Lehigh Cement Company
Founded in 1897, the Lehigh Cement Company began as a single-mill operation producing portland cement in Ormrod, Pennsylvania. In the early 1900s, when the U.S. was undergoing rapid expansion, Lehigh grew and thrived as the demand for concrete increased. Over the years, through a visionary policy of acquisitions, equipment modernization and productivity improvements, Lehigh Cement Company and its related companies have become leading suppliers of cements and construction materials in the United States and Canada.
