Community Engagement

Building Relationships

Holcim US emphasizes connection with its employees and the communities in which they live and work. We’re deeply committed to making a positive difference in two tangible ways - by encouraging employee involvement in support of local organizations and by investing our resources to support their activities.

The Career Week for GIRLs program gives young women, ages 13 to 20, the opportunity to take a look at our industry, receive hands-on learning and educate them on the many career paths within the construction and transportation industries. 

Alpena fills the pantries as part of their commitment to giving back to the people.



When two disasters hit in Holcim’s Mid-America region, local employees took action.

Sometimes necessary business activities can lead to unforeseen wildlife mishaps. Power line tree trimming at Lafarge Presque Isle Quarry accidentally caused the displacement of a nest and two young great horned owlets. Thanks to some quick thinking, the owlet rescue effort started rolling immediately.
