Cement has been manufactured at the Hannibal location since 1903. Several thousand men were needed for construction and operation of the original plant. A large number of Polish, Slavic, Hungarian, and Italian immigrants were attracted to jobs here. They settled on plant property and formed the small community of ILASCO, named for the constituents necessary in the cement-making process: Iron, Limestone, Aluminum, Silica, Coal, and Oxygen.
