Pushing for a building boom.

Pushing for a building boom.  

In cement, we stand. In a nutshell, this was the key message of top officials of building solutions provider Holcim Philippines, Inc. when it recently met with Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Secretary Ramon Lopez.  Holcim Philippines chairman Tomas Alcantara, President and CEO John Stull and senior vice president for sales William Sumalinog, personally expressed the company’s willingness to further build up its production capacities in light of the increased cement demand driven by the government’s massive infrastructure investments. They also assured the DTI compliance to product standards to ensure highest quality and performance. “I am happy to hear Holcim’s commitment to implement cement capacity expansion to ensure that our infrastructure and construction requirements will be well supported and generate additional employment,” Lopez said. Holcim Philippines is currently implementing projects that will raise its cement capacity nationwide to 12 million metric tons by 2019 from the current 10 million metric tons. The company is studying further investments on additional clinker lines with the construction sector expected to sustain its strong growth amid the healthy economy.  Shown here are (from left) Sumalinog, Alcantara, Lopez, and Stull.
