Cemex USA is investing more than $6 million in its new Brierfield, Alabama-based plant.

The Brierfield plant – which is located near Birmingham, Alabama – began operations in June, processing aggregate under the name RM USA Aggregates.

The operation is expected to produce close to 600,000 tons of asphalt stone, concrete stone and base annually, Cemex says.

According to the company, the investment ends its more than 10 year hiatus on aggregate production in the state, providing a new, local resource for customers and its Ready Mix USA concrete operations in Tuscaloosa, Vance and Alabaster, Alabama.

“Cemex and Ready Mix USA are proud to expand our services in Alabama to help meet the state’s ever-growing need for aggregates,” says Marc Tyson, president of Cemex’s MidSouth region. “The Brierfield plant gives us a new opportunity to support our existing customers and earn the business of new ones by leveraging the wealth of experience of our team and providing them materials sourced from all parts of Cemex’s supply chain.”

The Brierfield plant is the latest addition to Cemex USA and Ready Mix USA’s network in Alabama, which consists of one cement plant, three cement terminals and more than 30 ready-mix concrete plants.
