Fredonia prepares for loss of Lafarge cement plant
Feb, 17 2012
(Fredonia) -- The small Kansas town of Fredonia is bracing for the loss of its Lafarge cement plant, which is set to close next month.
The plant opened in 1907 and has operated 24 hours a day ever since. Citizens say they're worried about literal losses, such as the fact that workers will lose their jobs and the company will no longer buy water from the city, but that the loss is also sentimental.
Lafarge Africa has appointed Peter Hoddinott as the new group managing director /chief executive officer.
The company said in an issuer’s announcement that its board met on Wednesday 15 July 2015 and appointed Hoddinott as the new chief executive. More
