The newest Standard Ready Mix concrete plant is open and ready for business in Sioux City, Iowa.

After more than a year of searching for a new location with railroad access, the company decided to shuffle some existing property to make way for the new facility at 11th and Steuben Streets.

β€œThe culmination of buying and selling property combined with a well-planned plant site is how we successfully went from operating a well-maintained but tired production plant to a newly constructed, central-mix production facility that will serve our company and the community surrounding Sioux City well into the future,” said Lyman-Richey Corporation President of Concrete Companies Jarod Hendricks,

The Standard plant will serve the Iowa-Nebraska-South Dakota area and can accommodate up to eight different aggregates and five cements utilized in commercial and DOT projects in the region, Hendricks said.
