McInnis Confirms its Distribution Plan for the Atlantic Provinces
Port-Daniel–Gascons, September 7, 2017 – McInnis, the New Cement Company, announces its distribution plan for all of the Atlantic provinces, thus strengthening its presence as a leading cement supplier in eastern North America. The company has acquired two CRH Canada-owned distribution assets, enabling McInnis to reach the markets in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, as well as Prince Edward Island. McInnis will honor the orders of the clients supplied through those terminals and integrate their current employees.
In addition, McInnis has entered into an agreement with CRH Canada and will supply cement for this company’s terminals located in Long Pond, Argentia and Corner Brook in the province of Newfoundland directly from McInnis plant in Port-Daniel – Gascons. Deliveries to Newfoundland will begin this fall.
“With the addition of these terminals to our network, we are now able to secure a solid position in this market” said Hervé Mallet, President and CEO of McInnis Cement.
The McInnis distribution network includes several facilities: marine terminals in Providence (Rhode Island) and Sainte-Catherine (Québec) were the first to be built and commissioned. The Oshawa terminal in Ontario, fully operational for the past few days, has joined them. A railway transshipment station in New Richmond (Québec) is also operational, and the Bronx marine terminal in New York will join the network in 2018.
About McInnis Cement – The New Cement Company
McInnis Cement is a privately-held company with corporate headquarters in Quebec, Canada, with its United States headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut. The company’s plant in Port-Daniel–Gascons, Canada is the first new plant to serve Eastern Canada as well as the U.S. Eastern seaboard and Great Lakes region in more than 50 years. McInnis Cement has constructed a deep-water marine terminal, adjacent to the plant, and operates its own distribution network consisting of terminals strategically located in the U.S. and Canada. This will allow products to be shipped quickly and efficiently to markets along the East Coast and the entire perimeter of the Atlantic Ocean.
As the newest entrant in the North American cement market, the company’s goal is to supply its customers with superior-quality products that are consistently produced and reliably distributed, based on sustainable development principles. The use of advanced technology will enable the McInnis Cement plant to meet, if not exceed, the most stringent environmental standards, making its ecological footprint one of the smallest in the cement industry.
