Cementos Argos, a cement and ready-mixed company of Grupo Argos, has been ranked as the ‘most innovative company in Colombia’ by the National Business Association (ANDI) in partnership with Revista Dinero. This is with the company’s premise that innovation is the basis for sustainability and the main key with which it maintains its competitive advantage and strengthens the value perceived by its customers. This year, more than 322 organisations from all over the country participated.

Argos has stated that its innovation commitment continues to bear results, such as the generation of more than 30% of total revenues, the launch of 247 new products to the Colombian market, and the consolidation of a corporate culture that invites and promotes the emergence and execution of new ideas.

“This recognition gives us the motivation to continue moving forward and building,” said Juan Esteban Calle, CEO of Argos. ‘For us, innovation is all the gradual or exponential advances in new products, services, processes, and platforms that generate tangible benefits to our customers and society, to make possible the achievement of our higher purpose, which is help to build dreams in construction housing and infrastructure that contributes to generate well-being, development, and equity in all our territories.”

“Let’s celebrate this recognition as a result of Argos employees’ dedication and compromise, who are aware that we must reinvent ourselves every day, have value proposals, and innovative solutions in our cement business,” said Jorge Marío Velásquez.
