Brown & Bigelow is a publishing company based in Saint Paul, Minnesota, that sells branded apparel and promotional merchandise. The company was founded in 1896 by Herbert Huse Bigelow and Hiram Brown.
In the early 1900s few people believed that the Canadian cement industry had much of a future. It was populated by many small and under-financed companies offering products of varying quality. Alfred S. Rogers and John G. Lind were among the entrepreneurial few who were determined to create a successful Canadian cement company with a top-quality product. Together they founded what has since become St. Marys Cement Corporation.
Portland cement, which is normally derived from limestone, launched St. Marys Cement and has been the mainstay of growth for 75 years. During that time it has also become, literally, the foundation for much of North America's urbanization.
