Holcim Philippines is continuing to upgrade its production capacity in the Luzon region, home to the Filipino capitol, Manila, aiming to raise production at its La Union cement plant by 1H19. The company is currently installing new equipment and storage facilities to increase capacity to 1.8 million tpy. Its current capacity is 1 million tpy.
The company is also implementing efficiency initiatives at its Bulacan, Manila, and Batangas facilities to ensure better supply of cement to the whole of Luzon.
“Holcim Philippines remains committed to the development of Luzon and the entire country,” said Holcim Philippines President and CEO, John Stull. “These expansion and efficiency initiatives help ensure a reliable supply of high-quality cement that enable our partners to build better with certainty the many ongoing and upcoming construction projects in the region.”
The projects are part of Holcim Philippines’s initiatives to raise its nationwide cement production to 12 million t from the present 10 million t. The increased capacity enables Holcim Philippines to sustain its support to the country’s development, particularly in Luzon, which is projected to remain at the centre of the building boom, even as the government pours more resources in Mindanao.
