Agregados Argos, a venture of Cementos Argos and Construcciones El Cóndor, has launched and started the commercialisation of bagged aggregates. This will contribute directly to the expansion of the Argos product portfolio and the formalisation of the sector.

Four references for bagged aggregates are currently offered in Manizales, Pereira, and Armenia. The offer will be extended to other areas of the country this year.

In 2018, Argos Aggregates doubled the production capacity of its own plants and sold 6.8 million t, becoming a benchmark company in the aggregates industry in Colombia.

“This initiative allows us to generate to the clients and the different interest groups the tranquility that they are betting on a more sustainable construction, by using quality materials that come from a productive chain that respects every detail of the mining cycles, with care for the environment and by the communities surrounding the operation,” said Juan Gonzalo Uribe, Manager of Aggregates for the company.
