The Lehigh Cement plant in Glens Falls, N.Y., welcomed Assemblyman Matt Simpson (R-N.Y.-114) last month for a plant tour and visit. Simpson learned more about the key role the plant, which is the longest continually operating gray cement plant in the U.S., plays in building the local, regional and national economy.
“It was a pleasure to visit Lehigh Northeast Cement Glens Falls Plant Manager David Dreyer on Thursday to learn more about the history of Lehigh Hanson, Inc. and the resources the local plant provides to our community and beyond,” Assemblyman Simpson posted on Facebook after the visit.
Dreyer, along with support from the Lehigh Glens Falls team, hosted an informative and educational overview including company sustainability perspectives, key investment in the local community, the need for a long-term infrastructure investment and workforce development.
“These types of visits are great because they give us a chance to share how critical our products are to supporting a growing and sustainable economy,” said David Perkins, Lehigh vice president of government affairs and communications. “They also provide an opportunity to hear from those who represent us on areas where we can work together.”
