CEMEX has announced the reopening of the second line at the San Pedro Macoris plant, its main cement operation in the Dominican Republic. This investment will increase production capacity by one-third and allow CEMEX Dominicana to serve its customers better in high-growth markets in the Caribbean.
This investment, part of the company's growth strategy to enhance EBITDA generation, increases production capacity by more than 500 000 metric tons per year, implementing state-of-the-art technologies to improve efficiency while maintaining the highest international environmental standards. The total production capacity of the San Pedro Macoris plant will reach 2.5 million metric tons of cement and clinker.
"The reactivation of the production line is a clear example of our commitment to the sustainable development of the Dominican Republic. This investment contributes to the revitalisation of the national economy, promotes exports, reduces the need for imports, and supports employment and a more sustainable environment in the country," said Jesús González, President of CEMEX South, Central America, and the Caribbean.
This milestone is part of a larger project to expand CEMEX's operations in the Dominican Republic with new packaging machines, palletisers, hydro combustion, new trucks, and tanks. This investment will allow for incremental alternative fuel consumption, part of the company's Future in Action program, which focuses on achieving carbon neutrality by 2050.
