The Lafarge Ravena plant is launching a new initiative to better engage with members of the public. This is part of an ongoing effort by plant officials to strengthen ties with the Ravena-Coeymans community and facilitate an open dialogue about facility operations.
Since its opening in 1962, the Ravena plant has been proud to serve as the largest employer in Southern Albany County. We appreciate the local support we have received, and we strive to be a good neighbor by investing time and resources in community projects and programs.
We take all concerns about the plant very seriously and aim to operate in a manner that causes zero harm to employees, contractors, customers, and most of all, local residents, in keeping with the core values of our parent company, LafargeHolcim US.
To meet that goal, it is critical that we are able to respond to any issues in a timely manner. Our ability to do that relies on you.
Going forward, we ask that anyone who wishes to contact the plant first complete the Feedback Form providing as much information as possible and then email it to us directly at: Ravena@lafargeholcim.com. That includes any occurrences of materials that may appear on vehicles or other private property. Questions for the plant may be emailed directly to Ravena@lafargeholcim.com.
The plant will be working with the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to collect data on the type and source of these materials.
Lafarge Ravena leaders welcome input from the community, and we hope that this new approach will help us improve communications moving forward.
