Best Cement Manufacturer in France

Luigi Ferdinandi & Luigi Cement Co was a cement manufacturing company that was established in the United States in the early 20th century. The company was founded in 1903 in Boston, Massachusetts by Luigi Ferdinandi, an Italian immigrant who had previously worked in the cement industry in Italy.

The company initially produced only Portland cement, which is a type of hydraulic cement that is commonly used in construction. However, over time, the company expanded its product line to include other types of cement and building materials.

Luigi Ferdinandi & Son Cement Co continued to operate for several decades, but eventually went out of business in the 1970s due to declining demand and increased competition in the cement industry.

It's important to note that Luigi Ferdinandi & Son Cement Co is not the same as "Luigi Cement" that you mentioned earlier, which I could not find any information about.
