BNSF serves new Cemex terminal in Colorado
Cemex USA has launched operation of its new cement distribution terminal served by BNSF Railway Co. near Denver.
Located in Commerce City, Colorado, the terminal is served by an existing BNSF rail line out of the Lyons Cement Plant. The terminal has a silo capacity of 5,000 tons, Cemex officials said in a press release.
"Denver and the surrounding Front Range communities have seen incredible construction growth over the past several years and we're seeing increased demand for building products," said Frank Craddock, executive vice president-commercial and public affairs at Cemex. "The addition of this terminal allows us to address the construction needs of our customers for years to come."
The new terminal expands the company's footprint across Colorado, with the Lyons plant in the north and the Florence Cement Terminal in the south.
