The Plant, acquired in 2002, was Votorantim Cimentos' second acquisition outside Brazil (in 2001, VC purchased St. Marys Cement in the Great Lakes region, kicking off its internationalization process). Suwannee is located in Brandford, Florida, the third largest cement market in the United States, VC owns a 50% share of Suwannee. The other 50% belongs to Anderson Columbia, a civil engineering company that allied itself with Votorantim to have a partner in the field of cement production.
When it began operations, 180 thousand short tons of cement were being sold per annum. In 2004, the initial sales forecast was for 400 thousand short tons, but that goal was exceeded by 100%. Since then, annual production has consistently met and exceeded our customer's requirements. – less–ZoomInfo
