Economic Lifeline
Phoenix Cement came along at perfect time to resurrect struggling Verde Valley economy

The Salt River Materials Group-Phoenix Cement plant in 2006, after the $126.5 million modernization and many other modifications were completed. The 2006 photo was used on the cover of an industry magazine to promote the IEEE Conference in Phoenix that year, and the tour of the plant brought about 400 people into the Verde Valley. The plant has since changed again with the removal of the three original kilns and the addition of a new blending silo, part of a $35 million project that will be completed in 2008.<br>
