RIVER 7000

In 2005, Buzzi Unicem USA began an expansion project at the Festus, MO cement plant. Called the River 7000 Project, the new plant was built right next to the existing plant and integrated certain portions of the old plant into the new operations. When the River 7000 project came online in 2009, it increased the previous capacity of the old plant by more than one million tons per year.
