At Railton, one of the world's largest deposits of limestone is mined to provide Goliath Cement with the raw material to make Portland cement. While the raw cement is distributed Statewide and used to cement fill in west coast underground mines, the bulk is shipped out of Devonport to mainland Australia.

Australian Cement Holdings and Queensland Cement and Lime merged to form Cement Australia on 2 June, 2003.
