The Alma Cement Company was incorporated in the state of New Jersey in 1903.

A dynamite explosion on November 17, 1904 at the Alma Cement works plant in Oreton, Ohio, killed one man instantly, seriously injured another, and broke a leg each for two others and a foot for still another. The men were tamping a charge of dynamite in the lime stone quarry when it exploded prematurely with the foregoing dreadful results. The news of the tragic accident was brought in by the passengers and crew of the 12:40 Hocking Valley train.
