Noting their confidence in future growth projections for Nevada, company officials contend that the site Û potentially supplying sister Aggregate Industries operations in Las Vegas Û will position Holcim to support new development projects throughout the region. The company's Devil's Slide, Utah, mill currently supplies cement to Aggregate Industries.
