At the peak of the industrial revolution in Pre-Victorian Britain, limestone, clay and heat were first transformed into clinker then ground into a new higher quality cement. It was David O. Saylor who first joined the knowledge of cement-making with the unique limestone geology of Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley to create the first Portland Cement manufactured in North America.
As the direct successor to that legacy, ESSROC’s Saylor’s Portland Cement has set the standard for consistent quality and longevity for 150 years. Today, Portland Cement remains one of the most durable and versatile building materials available, making it an ideal choice for a vast variety of commercial and residential projects. Homes, buildings, bridges, sidewalks, floors — the applications are virtually limitless. Its unique properties and aesthetics present creative solutions for the world’s top architects and their most innovative designs.
