Cemex Philippines opened its newest warehouse to meet the increasing demand for high-quality construction materials. Located in Barangay Pangao West, Ibaan, Batangas, the 1,500-square-meter facility aims to strengthen Cemex Philippines’ supply chain capabilities in the region. 

For 2024, the national government allocated more than Php 1 trillion towards infrastructure development with almost 50% set aside for road networks and railway projects, further increasing the demand for high-quality construction materials in fast-expanding areas such as the CALABARZON Region.

Strategically located at the growth corridor of Batangas and Quezon, the newest facility will satisfy the requirement for strong and reliable cement for development projects in the area and nearby provinces. 

“By investing in this facility, we align with the government’s vision and priority for infrastructure development. During 27 years, we have played an important part in the country´s development, and we are ready to continue supporting the government’s ambitious plans going forward,” Luis Franco, Cemex Philippines President and CEO said during the recently held ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Ibaan warehouse.

The 24-hour operational warehouse provides staging areas for efficient loading and dispatch of cement products ensuring a steady supply to Cemex Philippines’ customer partners.

“We will be completing our Solid expansion project soon, and we will have the most efficient and sustainable cement production line in the Philippines. This warehouse is a great complement to our Luzon distribution network as it gives us a better position to address the increasing cement demand in the market,” Franco added. 

Cemex Philippines continues to expand its operations as a testament to its unwavering commitment to excellence in serving its clients and enabling greener and sustainable infrastructure growth. 

“Among the different product lines that we will offer, we have our Vertua products, which are low-carbon, high-quality cement,  consistent with our “Future in Action” program. We are determined to continue leading the construction industry towards a better and more sustainable future,” Franco highlighted. 

By strategically investing in regional capabilities, Cemex helps construction businesses adopt greener practices and meet ambitious development targets responsibly. Central to this vision are targets to decrease the cement value chain’s CO2 emissions by 35% in 2025 and more than 40% in 2030 based on Cemex’s 1990 baseline.
