CEMEX has 115 employees in Haiti, working at three maritime terminals and a commercial representation office. CEMEX has knowledge that its employees are safe. A rapid response effort to provide humanitarian aid to employees, their families, and neighbouring communities has been launched. To this end, the first delivery of basic goods has been completed, and a second one is underway.
Additionally, CEMEX has established a fund to receive voluntary contributions from its personnel worldwide. CEMEX will match every donation received two-for-one, and contribute the total amount to a relief program. Also, CEMEX is making its heavy machinery in Haiti available to assist relief teams in their efforts.
With three cement import terminals, two of which are located in the Port-au-Prince area, and one of them in the northern town of Cape Haitian, CEMEX is one of the major cement suppliers in Haiti. One of the terminals remains operating, and with the help of CEMEX in the Dominican Republic and its other operations in the Americas Region, CEMEX will be able to maintain supply of cement into Haiti and as such contribute to satisfying the country’s requirements.
