Country Christmas 2005
The Cemex Balcones Plant celebrated its silver anniversary in New Braunfels on Wednesday with a big “thank you” to 13 employees who have been with Cemex since the plant’s first day in operation.
The men, wearing matching light blue denim shirts embroidered with the company logo, stood proudly in front of a banner that proclaimed they were "celebrating 25 years of community.”
“We have not been here as long as the pyramids, but we have been here long enough for people to know how important we are in this community,” declared Plant Manager Ken Kerr before launching into a long list of the company’s local involvement.
Cemex is a member of the Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce and the new Economic Development Foundation, as well as being a supporter of the Comal County Fair, the Brauntex Performing Arts Center and local sports teams, just to name a few.
“We know our participation in New Braunfels is worthwhile, and it gives us a good feeling to know we can be of value,” Kerr said.

BRING THE FAMILY!
The company created a sensation earlier this year when rumors of major expansion plans leaked out several days before a scheduled announcement.
Company executives canceled the announcement but filed an application with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality earlier this summer requesting permission to double the plant’s size.
If TCEQ grants the permit, the $25 million expansion will be the largest investment ever in Comal County.
Cemex Public Affairs Vice President Susana Duarte said earlier this week TCEQ had not made its decision yet.
On Wednesday, Kerr implied the company would continue to grow and support the community.
“We will continue to respect and care for the environment,” he said. “We are dedicated to preserving the ecology of the New Braunfels area.”
Congressman Henry Cuellar, D-Laredo, whose district includes part of Comal County, was on hand to help the company celebrate. He said he was proud to have

He also applauded their employee safety record — no accidents in four years.
In recognition of Cemex’s birthday, Cuellar promised to send Kerr the United States flag that flew over the Capitol on Wednesday.
