Cemco names new president

By |  March 2, 2022


Cemco, a manufacturer of portable and stationary VSI crushing systems, appointed Jennifer Hise-Trujillo as its new president.

Hise-Trujillo takes over for her father, Neil Hise, who will remain with the company as chairman of the board and assist in an advisory role. She brings more than 23 years of industry experience to the position, the past 20 years coming at Cemco.

“Jennifer grew up at Cemco; from cleaning out the shop floor to spending years learning every facet of the business. She developed a passion for the industry at a young age,” Hise says. “It has been a pleasure to see how much the business and industry has impacted her. Our Cemco team has tremendous respect and gratitude for Jennifer’s leadership, dedication and commitment to support our customers.”

Cemco, a third-generation, family-owned company, prides itself on a holistic approach to developing crushing solutions, according to the company.

With more than 300 years of combined experience in the mining and aggregate industries, Cemco understands market challenges and is dedicated to partnering with its customers to engineer and design customized solutions to address the unique challenges each operation faces. The company says its industry expertise allows it to assist beyond crushing equipment by partnering with manufacturers to design full mineral processing plants.

Hise-Trujillo gained much of her industry experience learning from and working alongside her father and mother, Ty Juana Hise, Cemco’s CFO.

Hise-Trujillo attended the New Mexico Institute of Mining & Technology where she received her Bachelor of Science in mining engineering. After graduating, she worked at a TXI limestone quarry, then one of their sand and gravel operations, where she became the first woman plant manager in their 50 years of operation. After three years, she returned to Cemco as the vice president.

In addition to her hands-on industry experience, Hise-Trujillo has been an active member of the National Stone, Sand & Gravel Association for 20 years, serving as chairwoman of the M&S division from 2014 to 2015.

“Our values of integrity, quality and service are truly the backbone of who we are as a company,” Hise-Trujillo says. “I believe the culture of Cemco is what makes us so unique. We live and breathe the industry. I am looking forward to seeing our company grow and to leading our dedicated team in fostering relationships with producers from around the world – helping them to reach their fullest potential.”
