Cement Industries (Sabah) Sdn Bhd (CIS) will be delivering 35,000t of cement this week to meet the demands in the State Capital of Sabah.
Sabah is located on the northern portion of the island of Borneo. It is the second largest state in the country.
General Manager, Kenny Yong Haw Ngen, hoped the amount would clear the 10,000t) cement shortage.
"We obtained the supply of 10,000t from peninsula to cover the shortage in Kota Kinabalu (KK) that can last for two weeks.
But for the whole Sabah, the current shortage is 25,000t.
"To address this situation, we are buying 20,000t from the peninsula to meet the needs for this month, on top of the 35,000t for KK here," he said.
