Longtime Ragland, Alabama Operation Inaugurates New
Energy-Efficient Kiln Line

National Cement Company of Alabama's longtime Ragland manufacturing plant is just concluding a two-year, $300-million project to install cement production equipment designed to take advantage of the very latest carbon reduction practices and modern energy technologies, chiefly substituting fossil fuels with alternative fuels.

Cement Production, Southeastern Market

The National Cement Company of Alabama, Inc. has been producing cement in St. Clair County, Alabama for over 100 years.

The Ragland, AL plant ships manufactured cement products via truck and rail to a diverse customer base across Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Mississippi and Florida.

We maintain distribution facilities in Georgia and South Carolina, and our territory managers are strategically located throughout the southeastern states to ensure prompt customer service and delivery of our products.

Our business objective is to offer the highest quality cement at the best possible price while maintaining our core corporate values of integrity, quality, and customer service and loyalty. As a corporate citizen in the state where many of our employees also live, we strive to be environmentally responsible in the operation of our facilities.

In addition to manufacturing cement, National Cement of Alabama's ready-mix subsidiaries (Hodgson, Kirkpatrick and Walker) serve the Southeast region's needs for high-quality residential and commercial concrete products from numerous batch plants covering the diverse markets of Alabama and Georgia.

The Human Element:
Our Most Important
Natural Resource

National's customers span generations, and so do their employees. “People stay. It’s what we’re known for,” say Spencer Weitman, President of National Cement of Alabama. “From our managers to our sales team and on to our plant employees. We’re a people-oriented company. We've built long-term relationships and we do it from the people in the field, to middle management, to the upper management.“

Those employees have long lasting relationships with the customers.

“Rather than every three years rotating a guy through then the relationships have to start all over again,” Weitman says, “I’ve been in my job for 30 years. And we want to make sure future generations have what they need to take care of their families. That’s always our main goal with the Ragland Expansion,” Weitman says. “We’re good at what we do because of our people. We want to make sure they have a solid future.”


Ragland Operation First Vicat Acquisition Outside of France

Cement operations began in 1908 at the current plant site in Ragland, Alabama. The company was purchased by the Vicat Group of France in 1974. Backed by continuing committment and a steady exchange of technology and know-how, National Cement and Ragland continue to grow together.


Original Plant built by the Atlantic & Gulf Portland Cement Company.


The name "National Cement Company" was adopted.


European cement producer Societe des Ciments Vicat of Grenoble, France acquires the operation.
