The ceremony, led by Rodolfo Montero, General Director of Holcim Mexico, and Manuel Sirtori, Corporate Director of Concrete Sales and Logistics and Distribution, was attended by more than 45 clients from the area, and collaborators from different areas of the company, who together with Alfonso Treviño Medrano, Secretary of Urban Development at Arteaga, Coahuila, participated in the emblematic ribbon cutting and toured the facilities.
The new facility will immediately start supplying key works in Saltillo, such as the Plaza Comercial Santa Isabel, which will require 17 000 m3, as well as the float glass plant of Saint-Gobain, a technological development to supply the automotive industry in the Almería Derramadero Industrial Park, which will use 40 000 m3 of ready-mix concrete until its completion in 2020.
Holcim Mexico’s ready-mix concrete has helped raise a number of buildings in the city, such as the Courtyard Marriot and Starbridge hotels, the Ucalli Building, the Medical Office Tower and the Mercato restaurant complex, all in the Complejo Parque Centro (more than 33 000 m3 as a whole). It also contributed more than 13 000 m3 of concrete to the expansion of the General Motors plant in Saltillo.
The new plant has a total surface area of 14 400 m2 and required 2900 m3 of ready-mix concrete; it was completed with zero accidents. Already in operation, it will generate approximately fifty direct jobs.
