Concrete firm cements future with new plant near Hager City

HAGER CITY--A Minnesota concrete company already serving the Red Wing area has expanded with a second plant nearer that community and situated to do business in Pierce County, too.

St. Marc Materials opened the new plant July 13 on a parcel which had been vacant off of 830th Street on a road paralleling Hwy. 35, just northwest of Hager City, according to owner Chris Hanke. Hanke has operated the company's original plant in Kenyon, Minn., since buying it five years ago, he said Thursday.
