Taiwan Cement’s new factory in Anshun, in southwestern China’s Guizhou province, was launched on Tuesday.
The Anshun factory will have two production lines with a capacity of 4Mta after construction is fully completed at the end of the year.
Taiwan Cement Chairman Leslie Koo said since the company began to invest in mainland China in 2004, its businesses have expanded to 10 provinces.
"Guizhou, located in southwestern China, has a major role in mainland China’s western region development project," he said.
He said that Taiwan Cement used to set up factories in southern mainland provinces such as Guangdong and Guangxi, and this was the first time that it has landed in a southwestern Chinese province.
