60th Anniversary Open House

In 1956, St. Lawrence Cement’s Mississauga Plant began production. Sixty years later, as CRH Canada Group Inc., the plant celebrated its past, present and future with a celebration of epic proportion.

The celebration began on Friday, September 23rd with a private event for vendors hosted by the Mississauga Plant and the CRH Canada Procurement Team. 91 representatives from our vendors attended with 37 of them flying in for the occasion. The vendors appreciated the invitation and enjoyed celebrating our partnership over the last 60 years.

The celebrations continued on Saturday with an early morning Retiree Breakfast with 45 Mississauga and Ogden Point Quarry retirees returning home to the plant. Retirees were welcomed with chauffeured golf cart rides to the event venue, a delicious breakfast with the Open House volunteers and a bus tour of the plant.

The celebrations ended with the final event, the 60th Anniversary Open House for the community. Approximately 350 visitors, including local MP for Mississauga-Lakeshore Sven Spengemann, were welcomed through the gates of the Mississauga Plant and provided the opportunity to meet CRH employees, peruse departmental displays, enjoy a barbeque lunch and tour the plant by bus. Children learned how cement becomes concrete – making decorative concrete garden stones.

Children of all ages also had the opportunity to clock the best time on the popular remote control display! We presented two donation checks on behalf of the plant, totaling $60,000, to Armagh House and Ian Anderson House, two local community organizations that we are proud to support.

On behalf of the CRH Mississauga employees and retirees, we wish to thank everyone for your well wishes and support. Happy 60th Anniversary CRH Mississauga!
