Martin Marietta to add kiln at Woodville plant


WOODVILLE -- Martin Marietta Magnesia Specialties LLC announced Wednesday it would add a sixth kiln at its dolomitic lime production facility here.

The kiln, which will be operational in the fourth quarter of 2012, is the centerpiece of a $53 million investment that will add 900 tons of capacity per day.

The Woodville venue is the largest dolomitic lime plant in North America. The majority of the lime produced in Woodville is sold to the steel industry to purify steel and extend refractory life.
