CR Minerals Announces Plant Expansion

CR Minerals PlantCR Minerals announces plant expansion in Pueblo, Colorado. They are a leading manufacturer of pumice products and construction materials. The company will be investing over $11 million. They will also be adding approximately 8 more jobs to its existing staff over the next three years. The expansion will more than triple the production output of the facility. This will enable CR Minerals to serve its customers in Colorado and surrounding states well into the future.

The Colorado facility focuses on the production of a patented remediated fly ash (Tephra RFA). They also focus on other products (Tephra OG and Tephra NP) that take aim at construction materials. In addition to that, they will focus on product in the oil and gas industries as well.

“We are very excited about the expansion of our plant in Pueblo,” said Jeffrey Whidden, President of CR Minerals Company. “The continued growth of our business in Colorado and also declining availability of high-quality fly ash for our customers are the driving forces behind our decision. Expanding the plant at this time, even in these uncertain economic conditions, will enable us to serve our customers uninterrupted for years to come. As part of this expansion, we once again thank the City of Pueblo, PEDCO, and the area’s workforce for their continued support.”

The City of Pueblo through the Pueblo Economic Development Corporation (PEDCO) has provided funding for the expansion. This comes in the amount of $160,000 as part of the City’s half cent fund for economic development.  “Pueblo is thrilled to be selected as the location for CR Minerals’ continued expansion,” says Jeff Shaw. Shaw is the president and CEO of PEDCO.
