Inka's investment drive
Privately-owned Cementos Inka is the most recent entry into the Peruvian cement market having started production of a cement plant in the capital Lima just over five years ago. Today it places a keen focus on the production of blended cements to meet market requirements. With one expansion project already under its wing since its launch in 2007, the company is now setting its sights on further projects to meet the country’s dynamic demand prospects. By Carlos Alberto Choy Mack, Cementos Inka, Peru.
Peruvian-Chinese businessman Carlos Choy Mack, founder of Cementos Inka, and his son Carlos Choy Koosau decided to enter the Peruvian cement market in the late 1990s. With investments already in the fields of industrial gases and metalwork, Mr Choy Mack saw an opportunity to exploit a gap in the market as the three existing producers were situated in the northern, southern and central regions of the country.
