The company was established in 1995 by the President. During a long career in the global cement industry, he developed an expansive knowledge of the benefits of fly-ash as a supplementary cementitious material (SCM). The coal byproduct has been used in the cement industry for decades, but the unique properties of Alberta’s coal produce a fly-ash that is amongst the best quality fly ash in the world. Realizing this potential, ENX INC. began marketing the products to customers in different regions throughout North America, and in 2003, ENX INC. was shipping the first rail cars of Capital Power’s Genesee fly-ash to the United States from the facility in Acheson.
With continued success, ENX INC. developed strong relationships with a growing list of clients, culminating in a partnership with Calportland in 2005. The partnership resulted in a massive expansion in 2011 of both the Acheson facility and products offered.
After the expansion was completed, the Acheson terminal became the distribution center for Calportland cement products in Alberta. In addition to an expanded fleet of rail cars and track space, five silos were added to handle the expanded operation.
In 2014, the company expanded the Acheson terminal again by adding multiple silage for cement and fly-ash, as well as doubling the cement unloading capacity. With multiple products and customers across North America and a vibrant economy to bolster the industry, ENX INC. has become the largest exporter of fly ash in Canada and a major importer of Portland Cement.
ENX INC. began development of a new processing facility at Genesee in 2016, with final commissioning expected in Fall 2017. This new facility will use a proprietary process to produce the highest consistent quality fly-ash available on the market.
ENX INC. is California Portland Cement Companies (Calportland) exclusive distributor of general use, high strength and class G oil well cement in Canada. From Calportland parent company Taiheiyo Cement, cement is imported from China and Korea into import terminals in Portland and Seattle and then transported using ENX INC.’s large railcar fleet into Canada. ENX INC. then distributes the cement to end use customers using our dedicated trucking provider via pneumatic truck-trailer transport. CalPortland and parent company Taiheiyo are recognized as global leaders in the supply of high quality cement.
