June 1, 2022
CEMEX USA announced today that it recently received two awards from the Portland Cement Association (PCA), recognizing a pair of the company’s cement plants for their outstanding safety and community relations efforts.
CEMEX USA’s Miami, Fla., cement plant earned the 2021 PCA Safety Innovation Award for COVID-19 Management for its quick and ongoing response to the coronavirus pandemic. As the virus began to spread globally, employees at the plant swiftly implemented protocols aimed at safeguarding health and safety while maintaining business continuity. CEMEX also adopted Behaviors that Save Lives, its extensive company-wide COVID-19 protocols aimed at stopping the spread of the virus by focusing on identifying symptoms, physical distancing, protecting health and personal hygiene.
The PCA also honored CEMEX USA’s cement plant in Victorville, Calif., with the 2021 PCA Energy & Environment Award for Outreach. Each year, the operation positively impacts more than 1,000 students and educators through hands-on activities and educational programs. During the pandemic, the team at Victorville continued the community efforts by holding virtual events. Hundreds of students and educators benefited by learning about the manufacturing of cement, aggregates and ready-mix concrete as well as CEMEX’s ongoing commitment to sustainability.

PCA officially recognized CEMEX USA and its operations with a ceremony during its annual spring board and committee meetings earlier this year in San Antonio, Texas.
