CEMEX cement plant in Davenport, California, has been in operation for more than 100 years. When first completed, it played a vital role in many of the significant historical events of the 20th century, such as providing cement for rebuilding San Francisco after the great earthquake of 1906, the Panama Canal in 1914, the original dry docks at Pearl Harbor during World War I and their rebuilding after 1941.
Davenport cement was used to build the Golden Gate Bridge, the California Aqueduct, the Bay Area Rapid Transit, San Francisco’s famous Transamerica Pyramid.
