ST. MARY'S CEMENT AND CITY ANNOUNCE CONCRETE EXPANSION PLANS

     ST. MARY'S CEMENT AND CITY ANNOUNCE CONCRETE EXPANSION PLANS
    CLEVELAND, Nov. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Cleveland Mayor Michael R. White and St. Mary's Cement Company President John Crawley today announced the Toronto-based firm's plan to expand its operations into the United States by establishing a cement terminal in Cleveland's Flats.
    "The U.S.-Canada Free Trade Agreement is sparking new economic trade activities and business expansion opportunities benefiting both Toronto and Cleveland.  St. Mary's Cement is one of several Canadian firms that are locating facilities in our city, and we hope others will take a hard look at Cleveland as a friend and partner in their global expansion plans," said White.
    St. Mary's Cement expansion project represents approximately an $8 million investment in equipment and related facilities.  The expansion will also generate up to six new full-time jobs, a number of seasonal jobs and added tax revenues for Cleveland.  The cement terminal will be located on the site of the previously occupied Chevron Oil Company, at West Third and Jefferson Streets.
    "We were looking to expand our business in the United States.  The city of Cleveland and the state of Ohio have much to offer including an excellent business potential and a bright economic future.  Cleveland is also centrally located in the Great Lakes region," said Crawley.
    The city's Economic Development staff worked closely with St. Mary's site location staff to secure an ideal location for the proposed facility.  Requirements included close proximity to a river for the transportation of necessary materials, an experienced labor pool and a healthy business environment.
    "Cleveland's selection over other cities was due in part to the Port of Cleveland -- the largest on the Great Lakes -- a highly skilled work force, and a healthy business climate," said Economic Development Director Joseph A. Marinucci.
    White, along with a group of Cleveland public-private sector officials, is returning today from Toronto following meetings to discuss possible joint business relationships between Toronto and Cleveland-based companies.
