As part of the IEEE, I.A.S. Cement conference held in Calgary in May, 250 delegates took a day to head west to the mountains and tour the newly expanded Lafarge Exshaw Cement Plant.

Lafarge recently completed major upgrades and an expansion that has increased manufacturing capacity by over 60 per cent. Delegates were treated to a full tour of the plant and adjacent quarry where the latest cement-making technology was on display. The tour concluded with participants enjoying an Alberta-style beef lunch while overlooking the beautiful view of the Rocky Mountains.

It was great to hear such positive feedback from fellow cement industry professionals,” says Bachmann. “Participants really enjoyed the tour and had great comments about the equipment information we provided, as well as how well maintained and accessible the plant was.”
