Holcim US Expands Presence, Unites Legacy Brands in Boston
- Next milestone in Holcim’s transformation furthers global mission to build a greener future
Boston, Mass., September 12, 2023 – To continue its mission to build a greener future, Holcim US, the leader in sustainable building solutions, today announced plans to unite its legacy brands in and around Boston.
Building materials provider Aggregate Industries will now be part of a larger Holcim US presence. Regional Holcim operations include concrete, aggregates, asphalt & paving and aggregate recycling across the greater Boston areas of Saugus, Swampscott, Watertown, Everett, Wrentham and Waltham. As part of this transition, the Lafarge cement terminal in Charlestown is also rebranding to Holcim.
“With the integration of local legacy operations into Holcim, the Boston area will see expanded benefits of construction projects made from quality, innovative materials, such as ECOPact, that not only build needed infrastructure but also meet ambitious sustainability targets,” said Domenico D’Aqui, senior vice president and general manager, Northeast and Great Lakes Regions. “The step we’re taking today ensures our continued progress toward a sustainable future, working toward our global mission to lower the carbon footprint of the construction industry and bring advanced sustainable building solutions to all.”
The Boston transition follows the Holcim US rebrand that launched in March of 2022, followed by subsequent regional transitions in Texas, Colorado, Louisiana, Washington, D.C., and Michigan. Uniting these brands as Holcim contributes to the company’s ongoing initiatives to lead with sustainability in all facets of its operations and empowers its work as a sustainable builder of progress.
