Plant History

Kosmos Cement Company is located in Louisville, Kentucky and began shipping cement from this same location in 1905.

In 1974, the plant was upgraded with a new rotary cement kiln production line, and by 2000, the vertical preheater tower and precalciner were added to improve the productivity and efficiency of the operation. The three finish mills make use of high-efficiency separators to improve the quality and consistency of our products.

In 2020, Kosmos Cement Company was purchased by Eagle Materials Inc., adding 1.7MT of cement production to the Eagle's Heavy Materials Sector portfolio.
