Subway tunnels that course beneath New York. Pipelines that span the Southwest. Stadiums that hold thousands of fans and bridges that support millions of vehicles. We make the materials that form the foundation for living and the embodiment of strength. Lehigh Hanson is a leading supplier in North America of cement, aggregates, ready mixed concrete, asphalt and related construction materials.

As a part of the HeidelbergCement Group, one of the world’s largest integrated manufacturers of building materials our reach and capabilities are extensive.  Whether exploring new sustainable practices, or developing new products—the grit, determination, and tenacity of our employees have made us a trusted partner across the U.S. and Canada.

OUR COMPANIES

Most companies expand for two reasons: To extend their reach so they can serve more customers, and to extend their product line so they can create new options.  At Lehigh Hanson, we've done both. Our affiliated companies enable us to take on practically any project in North America, and to deliver a volume and variety of products that most of our competitors simply cannot match.

​Over the years, the company has grown through a series of acquisitions and partnerships. We've been fortunate enough to acquire strategic assets across North America that have helped us expand our geographic reach, and have enabled us to provide a broader spectrum of products and possibilities to the markets we serve.
