McInnis Cement breaks ground on first U.S. terminal

The cement company’s terminal in Providence, R.I. will serve the entire New England construction market, including the metropolitan areas of Providence and Boston, as well as the rest of Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut.

   Montreal, Canada-based McInnis Cement broke ground on its first U.S. terminal at the Port of Providence in Rhode Island.
   The $22 million project is expected to be completed this coming winter, McInnis said.
   Ships with payloads of over 30,000 metric tons will frequent the terminal in Providence, arriving from the company’s new cement plant in Port-Daniel-Gascons, Canada, which is currently under construction.
   The Rhode Island terminal will serve the entire New England construction market, including the metropolitan areas of Providence and Boston, as well as the rest of Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut.
   Overall, the terminal will have the capacity to load about 100 trucks and 10 railcars with cement each day.
   McInnis’ plant in Port-Daniel-Gascons is one of the largest industrial projects currently under construction in eastern North America and the first new cement plant to be built in North America in over 50 years, the company said.
   In addition, McInnis is constructing a deep-water marine terminal adjacent to the plant and plans to open more terminals in the U.S. and Canada.
   “The plant, strategically located in an area rich with limestone, is capable of producing 2.2 million metric tons of cement every year, which will meet the need for greater production in the U.S.,” Jim Braselton, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Sales and Distribution said. “Our new plant will place McInnis at the industry’s forefront by redefining the way cement is made, and taking a greener approach to the process to reduce the environmental impact for each ton of cement produced.”
