Libya: a new start
Asamer Holding operates three cement plants in Libya under the Libyan Cement Company (LCC). These factories were suddenly taken out of production some 18 months ago when protests against the Gaddafi regime intensified into armed conflict and civil war. The task to restart the facilities has been a difficult but rewarding journey. Robert Solomon, CEO of Asamer Holding/Libyan Cement Co, explains.
Asamer Holding took a number of steps to prevent its facilities and staff from harm during the recent conflict in Libya. It is now on the road to re-establishing its operations post-revolution in what it hopes will be a new era for Libya and the LCC.
