EagleMaterials Laramie

US Eagle Materials announced plans to modernize and expand its Laramie cement plant in Wyoming and related distribution facilities in Northern Colorado for an investment of US$ 430m. A modern kiln line will increase the plant capacity by 50% to about 1.2 Mta. The investment shall reduce operating costs by 25% and the CO2 footprint by nearly 20% by replacing the use of solid fuels with lower cost alternative fuels and natural gas, simplified maintenance programs, and improved operating efficiencies. The planning for the project has been completed, primary regulatory approvals have been received and construction is expected to begin immediately. Start-up is scheduled for the second half of calendar year 2026.
