CEMATRIX and Lafarge To Co-Develop Regional Cellular Concrete Markets

The CEMATRIX – Lafarge relationship has moved a couple of notches higher with today’s news that the companies have signed regional five-year agreements to develop mutually beneficial business opportunities.

This follows the signing last June of a five-year joint marketing agreement with the world’s largest cement company.

Since last year’s announcement, the two companies have been focused on growing business across Canada. CEMATRIX management has been training and educating Lafarge’s sales and marketing groups on the multiple applications and uses of cellular concrete. Today’s announcement of the new regional five-year agreement between Lafarge and CEMATRIX sheds some light on how this growth is expected to occur.

The two companies plan to place CEMATRIX equipment in a specific regional market where Lafarge has a sales force and physical presence and CEMATRIX does not. Lafarge will lease a ready mix unit from CEMATRIX, ancillary equipment and the needed staff for each project sold in that specific region. The plan is to roll out multiple regional agreements across the country as well as developing sales previously announced on larger supplied projects on a national basis.

Jeff Kendrick, CEO of CEMATRIX, stated, “It’s important to note that there is no technology transfer under either of the agreements.  The focus of both parties is to increase the sales of Lafarge cement and ready mix products by increasing sales of CEMATRIX cellular concrete across the country.”

CEMATRIX Corporation Announces Agreements to Develop Regional Cellular Concrete Markets With Lafarge Canada Inc.

Calgary, Alberta – February 28, 2017: CEMATRIX Corporation (TSXV: CVX) (the “Corporation” or the “Company” or “CEMATRIX”) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, CEMATRIX (Canada) Inc. has entered into agreements directed at developing regional markets for CEMATRIX cellular concrete through Lafarge Canada Inc. (“Lafarge”).

“These new five year agreements between Lafarge and CEMATRIX are focused on locating equipment in a specific regional market, where Lafarge has a physical presence, including a sales force. Mainly where CEMATRIX has no physical presence,” stated Mr. Kendrick, President and CEO of CEMATRIX. “The plan is facilitated by Lafarge leasing a ready mix supplied CEMATRIX processing unit and ancillary equipment from CEMATRIX and CEMATRIX providing experienced staff for each of the projects sold in the respective region.”

“Once the equipment is in place, both Lafarge and CEMATRIX have committed to focus their joint resources on the development of this new regional market for cellular concrete. Sales from this new market focus will take time to develop, as will sales from the previously announced joint marketing agreement that is focused on larger cement supplied projects on a national basis.”

“A critical factor to both parties, is that CEMATRIX has already successfully placed cellular concrete in several key projects in the initial region selected, so it is anticipated that the development of the market in this region will take much less time, than when CEMATRIX first introduced its products in Alberta. More importantly for CEMATRIX and Lafarge, is that the success of this venture will lead to the joint development of other regional cellular concrete markets across Canada”

“It’s important to note that there is no technology transfer under either of the agreements. The focus of both parties is to increase the sales of Lafarge cement and ready mix products, by increasing sales of CEMATRIX cellular concrete across the country”.

CEMATRIX is an Alberta corporation with its head offices in Calgary, Alberta. The Corporation, through its wholly owned subsidiary, is a rapidly growing, cash flow positive company that manufactures and supplies technologically advanced cellular concrete products developed from proprietary formulations. This unique cement based material with superior thermal protection delivers a cost-effective, innovative solution to a broad range of problems facing the infrastructure, industrial (including oil and gas) and commercial markets.

Alex Ruus on FLYHT: “This Will Become, Over Time, a Global Standard for the Industry.”


Arrow Capital Management portfolio manager Alex Ruus was very upbeat in response to a question regarding FLYHT Aerospace during yesterday’s appearance on BNN’s Market Call Tonight. FLYHT was selected as a “Top Pick” on an earlier episode of the show.

Here are some key points Mr. Ruus made about FLYHT during the segment.

  • “FLYHT is an ‘Internet of Things’ company for the aircraft industry.”
  • “They provide critical data streaming from planes to the ground.”
  • “I would argue that they are the leaders in that segment. They’ve done a deal with Airbus. I would argue that this will become, over time, a global standard for the industry.”
  • “After three or four years of struggling from a stock perspective. The stock has recently perked up and we think that that is just the start of great things to come.”
  • “Things are progressing there, we think there’ll be good news this year and we think the stock will go significantly higher.”
