The Hong Kong firm will own a clinker production line, three cement lines and two concrete plants, which are located in Huizhou, Guangdong Province and are designed to produce 992 000 tpa of clinker, 3.45 million tpa of cement and 1.2 million m3 of concrete.

It also said that it will purchase a 72% stake in Guardwise Investments for RMB 1.52 billion to own a cement production line that is under construction in Shanxi Province.
