The World Cement Association has further expanded its international network of members by welcoming the Colombian cement company Ultracem as a Corporate Member. The Association now has a membership made up of 69 members and representatives that cover 38 countries.

“In a globalised world, we can only solve the main challenges facing the cement industry, like climate change, together. We are excited to welcome Ultracem to our membership, and particularly value their record of launching new environmental initiatives in the Colombian cement sector,” said Norman Greig, Secretary General of the World Cement Association.

Ultracem produces cement and concrete for the Colombian construction market. It was founded in 2011 and now has an annual capacity of 1.2 Mt cement, produced in its plant located on the northern coast of the country. In 2015, Ultracem built the first monolithic concrete dome in Colombia, with a capacity of 95 000 t.

"We are very pleased to join the WCA as a founding corporate member and joining this select network of companies.
