A building materials company wants to expand its operations at Port Tampa Bay due to demand it’s seeing for cement products.
Cemex Construction Materials Florida LLC currently leases two sites at the port one is where it operates a cement handling terminal at Berth 3.
The West Palm Beach-based company wants to lease roughly 5 additional acres of land from the port so it can handle more cement products, fly ash, industrial slag, limestone and more. It also wants to build a ready-mix concrete plant.
Ready-mix concrete is specifically batched or manufactured for customers’ construction projects rather than being mixed and made on the project site.
The concrete is typically used for industrial and infrastructure projects.
