Cemex in Spain has obtained quality and environment certification from the AIDICO Technological Institute of Construction, an accredited institution for quality and environmental management systems, for its gravel quarries and ready-mix concrete and mortar plants in the country.
In March 2010, AIDICO conducted certification audits in 27 of Cemex’s aggregates quarries and 102 of the company’s concrete and mortar plants in Spain.
For its aggregates quarries and mortar plants, Cemex received the plant production control certification under CE European Standards, which is a requirement to sell construction materials in the European Union. Additionally, the company received the AIDICO ISO 9001 for 130 of its aggregates quarries and ready-mix concrete and mortar plants. This qualification certifies that formalized business processes are being applied in the organisation.
