INDUSTRY RELATIONS

To achieve broad industry goals, we sometimes need to reach beyond the boundaries of individual companies and organizations to be part of something larger. Industry-wide action on government affairs, promotion and research lifts the entire construction community while building on and complementing Lehigh Hanson initiatives.

Ultimately, our success depends on partnerships with customers and other segments of the construction industry. To that end, Lehigh Hanson supports and actively participates in a wide range of industry trade groups and associations.
