The Keystone plant has been operating since 1928 and supplies the Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York markets with bulk and bagged Portland cements. The plant operates with a kiln line which was modernised in 2009 and has a capacity of 1.1 million t of cement per year. The agreed purchase price for the plant is US$ 151 million cash free and debt free which is the equivalent of about US$ 137 per ton of cement capacity.

The transaction is subject to antitrust regulatory approval and is expected to close in the coming months.
