As the Lafarge Tulsa Cement Plant celebrates 50 years in Tulsa, 50 Years • Tulsa’s Cement Plant looks back on what the plant has achieved since it began operation as the Dewey Portland Cement Company in 1961. Through the years the technology has changed as has the sign on the door, but what always remains is the people and commitment to creating a quality product for projects and landmarks throughout the state of Oklahoma and beyond.
Most importantly, 50 Years • Tulsa’s Cement Plant highlights the people, accomplishments, milestones and stories that have made the Tulsa Cement Plant what it is today – a leader in the industry.
