Vulcan Christens New M/V H.A. Sklenar

Friday, October 19, 2007
Vulcan Materials Company christened the M/V H.A. Sklenar at the company’s Blakely Island sales yard at the Port of Mobile recently. The vessel brings Vulcan’s fleet of Panamax-Class self-unloading vessels to three. The Sklenar and its sister vessels W.H. Blount and Bernardo Quintana, transport high quality limestone aggregates from Vulcan’s Sac Tun quarry on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula to markets along the U.S Gulf Coast, the east coast of Florida and the Caribbean. “We are pleased to honor our former chairman and CEO, Herb Sklenar, by naming our third vessel after him,” said Don James, Vulcan’s chairman and chief executive. “With our plant expansion completed and the Sklenar in service, Vulcan is able to increase it shipments to attractive markets along the Gulf and South Atlantic Coasts.” James said long-term population growth and market demand in the region are expected to continue to increase at levels above the national average, while levels of quality aggregates decline. “Over time, we expect to continue to increase production and shipping capacity from our Sac Tun quarry so that Vulcan will be positioned to serve expected growth in markets throughout the region,” James said. A leading producer of construction aggregates and other material, Vulcan stock is publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “VMC.”
