Buzzi Unicem’s Stockertown Plant celebrates 100 years

Built in 1906, the plant didn’t become operational until 1916. The financial panic of 1907 delayed construction until Morris Kind and associates purchased and finished the work in 1916.

Over the decades, the plant has become known as a survivor embodying its namesake, Hercules, by being an organization of energy and innovation, able to measure a situation and apply logical solutions in the face of difficulty and adversity.

The Stockertown Plant has been known for its contributions to the industry: closed cement hopper rail cars, preheater tower, NOx and SO2 emission advances, and most recently, researching the growing use of switchgrass as an alternative fuel.

Some of the projects, in and around the Lehigh Valley, which included cement produced from the Stockertown quarry aStockpic2re:
