GCC Rio Grande

Company Overview

GCC of America, Inc. is a regional manufacturer of cement, concrete, and coal. Grupo Cementos de Chihuahua (GCC) created the U.S. division with the 1994 purchase of a 500,000 ton cement manufacturing facility in Tijeras NM. A distribution terminal in Albuquerque and another in El Paso were added later in the same year.

GCC expanded cement manufacturing capacity in 2001 with the purchase of Dacotah Cement in Rapid City SD. Further capacity expansion took place in 2008 when GCC commissioned the Pueblo, Colorado plant. This state of the art facility added 1 million tons of production to the GCC network.

Multiple and dynamic business acquisitions have taken place over the last several years, including the GCC Energy coal mine in Hesperus Colorado, Consolidated Ready Mix in South Dakota and Minnesota, Mid Continent Concrete (Midco) in Oklahoma and the Midwest, and several other ready mix concrete and transportation operations.
