New Production Facilities to Serve Western US

​First Plant near Salt Lake City to Serve Utah and Idaho Markets

Geofortis has begun constructing our first plant to process natural pozzolans in Tooele, UT.  The new plant will begin operations in July 2021.  The plant uses our natural pozzolan source located just 40 minutes from the plant and will serve the greater Salt Lake area and beyond.

​​​​​​​Geofortis' second plant is planned at our site in Reno, NV. It will primarily use our natural pozzolan source located 30 minutes west.  The Reno plant will serve both northern Nevada and northern California by truck and rail shipments.

Our Innovative Engineering Creates Best Products

​Our in-house Research and Development team has conducted thousands of tests over 6+ years to identify and prove the efficacy of our natural pozzolans for concrete additives.  We have worked with large concrete producers to confirm our results and establish a market presence. We have demonstrated the benefits of our products both in the lab and in full-scale concrete pours.

Our environmentally friendly products improve concrete strength and durability, reduce permeability and provide cost savings for producers on both small and large scales.  Additionally, Geofortis’ Natural pozzolans have been proven to solve the severe problem of poor quality aggregates that exist across the broader Western US.
