Board learns more about US operations and projects
The Cementos Argos board of directors visited Atlanta, Georgia, this past week for their board meeting and were able to meet with the U.S. executive team to learn more about our U.S. operations. While in Atlanta, the board of directors were able to tour Mercedes-Benz Stadium, which is home to the Atlanta Falcons NFL team and the Atlanta United FC MLS team.
Known for its multi-purpose retractable roof and the record-breaking size of its 360-degree halo board, this 2 million square-foot stadium is positioned in the heart of Atlanta, and is central to the sports fan experience in this growing city.
Argos poured 200,000 cubic yards of concrete for this iconic stadium, which wrapped up in 2016 in time for the 2017 season. In addition, the concrete we poured for this project was created entirely with Argos cement. This iconic stadium is a great example of how Argos was able to meet the needs of its customer by leveraging its vertical integration and streamlining operations to provide efficient and timely service, while also helping to realize the vision of this great stadium and its importance to the surrounding community.
