US Dragon Cement plant becomes distribution center

Dragon Cement ThomasonPlant

US Dragon Cement at Thomason in Main is transitioning its business model from cement manufacturing to distribution and storage, effective 2.Q in 2024. After announcing a year ago that its cement plant was ending production, Dragon Products Co., a subsidiary of Giant Cement, will now use the Searsport harbor to import cement from Spain and then transporting it to Thomason. This strategic shift is driven by the cost effectiveness of international importing compared to local manufacturing.
