We are Holcim, a proud part of the Alpena community for more than 100 years!
Holcim is a pillar in the Alpena community through support for economic development and our commitment to environmental and social responsibility.
Welcome to Holcim Alpena!
Our roots in Alpena, Michigan, run deep, and so does our responsibility to this community. The town is home to our cement plant and, more importantly, to the families of more than 200 men and women working at the Holcim Alpena site.
As the leader in building materials and solutions, we provide cement that is used to develop the roads we take to visit family, drive to work and enjoy Michigan's natural treasures. Our cement is also a foundational material in housing, schools and hospitals. It’s a fundamental part of society that connects us all.
Thanks to our teams, Holcim Alpena has a positive impact on Michigan and our surrounding Great Lakes. I am incredibly proud of our long legacy of community commitment and our dedication to preserving our great state for future generations.

Our plant also serves customers throughout the Midwest and Ontario via the Great Lakes vessels and cement terminals.
