AMERICAN COURAGE arrived in Erie earlier than scheduled today, at 0900. The COURAGE proceeded inbound and docked at the Old Ore Dock to unload stone from Cedarville.
Erie Sand & Gravel parent company Oglebay Norton was sold Friday to the Carmeuse Group, a Belgium-based company that is the world's largest producer of lime products. Carmeuse already owns docks in Buffington, Indiana; Chicago, Illinois; River Rouge, Michiga; and Green Bay, Wisconsin. I have no idea what changes this may mean for the operation here in Erie.
