Trident Cement Plant, Three Forks, Montana

The Trident cement plant, located on the banks of the Missouri River, has been in operation providing materials for the regions’ growing infrastructure for over a century.

Construction of what was then to be called the Three Forks Portland Cement Co. plant first began in 1908, leading to the official founding of the Town of Trident, due to the growing population of construction workers, the need for a rail stop and a post office. The first cement shipment by Three Forks Portland Cement Co. was made in 1910.

Between 1920 and 1940, cement from the plant contributed to many regional construction projects, including the building of the Grand Coulee gravity dam in Washington state, as well as several dams within the Missouri watershed area. Most notable was the Fort Peck Dam, the largest hydraulically filled dam in the United States, which at the height of its construction employed over 10,000 workers.

As a CRH US cement plant, Trident continues to be a key economic contributor to the area. Recently, the plant supplied products for a new I-90 interchange at the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport and expansion projects at Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana.
