Cesar Revuelta

Thursday, May 14, 2015 by ED PANY Curator, Atlas Cement CompanyMemorial Museum in Local News

Mr. Revuelta was reared in Santander, Spain, where his parents, brother and sister reside. He graduated from the University of Oviedo in Northern Spain with a degree in mining engineering and a specialty in blasting and underground mining. This six-year program included study in Poland.

Cesar started in underground mining. He joined Cementos Portland Valderrivas in 2005 as a production manager in Spain, later coming to Keystone as the plant's process manager. Currently, he is the quarry manager. He said, "We have an excellent quarry team of 14 people who mine and process over one million tons of stone annually. The men are very dependable, knowledgeable and easy to work with. We blast once a week and stress safety in everything we do.

"There is always a challenge in building the roadways in the quarry, giving us access to the best stone for the plant's products."

Mr. Revuelta has adjusted well to a new culture and language in communicating with his dedicated quarry team. With a smile on his face, he said, "It's a privilege living in the area, our family enjoys the natural beauty and wildlife and the proximity to New York City, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. As a child I saw pictures of the places, and we now have the opportunity to visit them."

Cesar's wife, Monica, is also a mining engineer and worked for CPV in Spain. They are proud of daughters Carla and Malena. The family will return to Spain this summer, where he will be a production manager at one of the company's plants.

A fine gentlemen, we value his friendship as he returns home. We extend best wishes to Cesar in his new position.
