The Plant

The McInnis Cement plant in Port-Daniel–Gascons is a major industrial complex in Canada. More than $1 billion was invested in the plant and network of terminals.

Our plant is a model of environmental performance and meets or exceeds the highest standards in the world.

The site of the Port-Daniel–Gascons cement plant has many features that give it key advantages. Adjacent to the plant is a quarry that contains extremely high quality limestone. The deep-water marine terminal dramatically reduces transportation costs, making shipping both cost-effective and highly competitive. Furthermore, access to maritime transport means a substantial reduction in the ecological footprint generally associated with cement transportation. In fact, just one ship can carry the equivalent of 1,500 truckloads of cement.

The plant has obtained ISO 9001, 14001 and NSF certifications.

With these unique features, this project is an economic driver for the Gaspé region – and in larger part, the entire province of Quebec. The plant provides a reliable source of consistently high-quality cements to North America’s eastern seaboard, served by a network of strategically located modern terminals and equipped with customer support in all McInnis markets.
