Lafarge Cement Plant in Ravena celebrating 60th anniversary
The Lafarge Ravena Cement Plant celebrates its 60th anniversary this year.
With more than 160 full-time workers, it’s the largest employer and local property taxpayer in southern Albany County.
The plant has the capacity to produce 2.2 million metric tons of cement a year.
The Ravena plant tells the Upstate of Business it’s deeply committed to serving the community, and supports schools, public safety agencies and food pantries.
The plant also has a Community Advisory Committee, where residents and government leaders get updates on new facility developments, and give feedback about how to meet the plant’s goal of being a responsible neighbor.
