Taiheiyo Cement Corp. said Monday its plant in the city of Ofunato, Iwate Prefecture, Japan, one of the regions hit hardest by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, will resume cement production on Friday.

Production will restart at one of the two kilns at the plant, which has been used to incinerate debris from the disaster since June. Taiheiyo Cement is also considering restarting the other kiln, company officials said.
