FTC Requests Public Comment on Application from Heidelberg Cement AG and Italcementi S.p.A. to Approve Divestiture of Cement Facility

We are a family owned and operated company founded in 1971. The success of our highly competitive business requires access to competitively priced Portland cement. We feel that the consummation of the proposed transaction may adversely affect pricing of Portland cement to our organization. The continued contraction & consolidation of this industry tends to eliminate vibrant, pro-active cement competitors. We therefore respectfully oppose completion of this transaction.
