PHINMA Corporation has recently opened its first cement and port facilities under PhilCement Corp., in Bataan. The new plant and facilities total investment of PHP1 billion.
PHINMA President Chief Operating Officer, Ramon del Rosario, said: “We want to contribute what we can in nation-building to making lives better.” Rosario also noted that one way in which lives can be improved is through infrastructure development programmes."
“The ‘Build, Build, Build’ programme is a very important component of this administration and I think it is worthy of support,” Del Rosario said.
Del Rosario added that he expects PhilCement to fill the gap in the industry and meet the demands for domestic manufacture of cement, which is key to infrastructure in his opinion. He also placed emphasis on providing only top-quality cement for projects such as building roads, bridges, housing and railways.
Del Rosario also mentioned that he felt fortunate to collaborate with PhilCement in Mariveles, as it is the “only one of its kind and also the largest independent cement bulk terminal in the whole world”.
PhilCement President and Chief Executive Officer, Eduardo Sahagun, spoke about the issues surrounding emissions and pollution, stating, “I want to assure that there are no emissions that will be harmful to the community, especially along the seashore,” he said.
