Field Mix Cement
For those jobs that require a field mix, John’s Building Supply has partnered with the Lehigh Cement Company, an industry leader in bagged cement. Cement has been around for centuries and has evolved thru technology into complex material that brings strength and durability to the building industry. When mixed with water, sand and gravel or crushed stone, you get a rock hard product called concrete.
The Lehigh Cement company was founded in 1897 in Ormond Pennsylvania and has since grown to be one of the top providers of cement products in North America today. In 1977 Lehigh Cement was purchased by HeidelburgCement. In 2007 the company then purchased Hanson PLC and rebranded the company as Leghigh Hanson. They offer a wide selection of products for the masonry industry including:
Designed to be stronger and more consistent than natural concrete, Lehigh Hansons Type I-II is a general purpose cement that does not requires special properties. Used widely in the construction of buildings, bridges, pavements and more.
