New York is known as the city that never sleeps. The population of New York is growing by around 1% per year. With roughly 19 million inhabitants, the city is the largest metropolitan area in North America and ranks among the top 10 metropolitan areas in the world. The architecture with its skyscrapers, bridges, and tunnels is world-famous. HeidelbergCement is part of the past, present, and future of New York through its North American subsidiary Lehigh Hanson. The company, which has operated in New York since 1897, has played a huge role in the growth of the city. Our building materials were used for the foundations of the Freedom Tower as well as for the third-highest skyscraper, 432 Park Avenue. Cement is delivered in an environmentally friendly way via ship to our terminal in Brooklyn. From there it is only a stone’s throw to the city’s construction sites. The use of waterways is efficient and relieves New York’s road network of several thousand trucks each year.
