The Cemex  plant has made cement for California and the Western US for a century and provided well-paying jobs to thousands of residents of the High Desert over the years, the Hesperia Star reports.

Cemex, which has produced Portland Cement since the plant opened on Labor Day in 1916, was recognized by the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors for the company’s contributions as “a cornerstone” of the local economy and a community partner.

“Cemex has been a tremendous company in our community,” 1st District Supervisor Robert Lovingood said. “For a century, generations of High Desert residents have worked at the cement plant, earning good wages to provide for their families.”

While cement is the predominant product mined and processed in the Victor Valley, Lovingood said the county has a rich history of mining that continues today.

“There is a saying in the mining industry, ‘If it isn’t grown, it has to be mined,’” said Lovingood, who noted that local mines produce everything from gold and silver to basic elements used in paint, cosmetics and high-tech materials used in the defense industry, cellphones and construction materials for homes and roads.

In August, Cemex’s Victorville plant achieved the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Energy Star certification for 2016 for its efforts in energy efficiency and sustainability. It was the fifth time the plant was recognized.
