WIM AZ August Lunch & Learn
WIM AZ Presents: Dig In to Lhoist Nelson
Presented by Jolene Leist – Plant Manager with Lhoist
Join Jolene Leist, a Plant Manager with Lhoist North America-Nelson Plant who will talk about the oldest continuously mined limestone quarry in AZ. Unlike most traditional mining operations, we do not operate from a pit but rather from the tops of mountains down. We have been mining limestone at the Nelson facility since the late 1800’s and continue that tradition today. The Nelson plant is owned by the Belgium family (Lhoist) who has been in the lime industry just as long. The Lhoist family promotes a culture of inclusion and sustainability, which could also be considered moving mountains.
