Lehigh Hanson Becomes Heidelberg Materials
Lehigh Hanson, Inc. announced it changed its brand to Heidelberg Materials, effective immediately.
This exciting new brand identity was first announced in September of last year. As of today, it is being used by the company's corporate office and its two main brands, Lehigh Cement and Hanson Aggregates. The majority of the company’s other subsidiaries in the U.S. and Canada will change their brands to Heidelberg Materials in the coming months.
The change from Lehigh Hanson to Heidelberg Materials shows that the company is taking a much broader and more innovative approach to serving its customers and becoming the industry leader in digital and sustainable solutions. Even though the name Heidelberg has been around for more than 150 years and is usually only linked to cement, the name Heidelberg Materials shows that the company is an expert in the heavy building materials industry.
“This is a major step change for our company, both globally and here in North America,” said Chris Ward, President and CEO of Heidelberg Materials North America and Member of the Managing Board of Heidelberg Materials. “We are thrilled to begin this transformation in North America today and continue our global journey to grow our business beyond cement and aggregates and become the most sustainable company in the sector.”
