Lehigh Cement Company is among the leading producers of bulk cement in North America. With plants and distribution terminals strategically located across the United States and Canada, we manufacture and supply a variety of cements, covering a range of ordinary portland cement for traditional uses as well as masonry products, custom-colored, blended and slag cements.

The majority of our cement is used in the production of ready mixed concrete. Our cement is also used in paving applications, concrete pipe, masonry products, oil and gas drilling, precast concrete structures and soil stabilization.

Lehigh began producing cement in Mitchell in 1902 and the plant has undergone multiple modernizations since that time.  This site was selected due to the availability of excellent, high quality limestone reserves and access to rail which was the major means of distribution in the early years of operation.  Limestone is the major raw material used in the production of cement.

The tour will include visits to the quarry and cement plant operations, including raw material storage, raw grinding, kiln burning, finish grinding, and cement shipping departments.  Visitors will also see the central control room and quality control laboratory.
