CalPortland excited about the aggregate industry’s future

By |  February 14, 2018

CalPortland had a positive response to the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act, and it is among the industry companies looking forward to the passage of a comprehensive infrastructure bill sometime in 2018.

The company expects strengthening economic conditions supported by tax reform to play key roles in the demand for concrete and other key construction materials for the rehabilitation of existing projects, as well as new construction. Additionally, CalPortland anticipates economic momentum supported by tax reform and the anticipated federal infrastructure legislation to create jobs and allow it to continue to invest in its business throughout the western United States.

“We are excited about the future,” says Steve Regis, senior vice president at CalPortland. “The combination of the new tax legislation and reduced bureaucratic red tape will allow American manufacturing to once again compete in world markets. CalPortland is proud of its record on safety compliance, environmental compliance and energy conservation, however, the company also recognizes the importance of cutting the red tape that has been strangling America with burdensome regulations. Once again, President Trump and Congress have been delivering on promises to streamline runaway bureaucratic regulation.”

CalPortland is a building materials company producing cement and construction material products on the West Coast. The company has operations in Alaska, Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada and Arizona, as well as in British Columbia and Alberta, Canada.
