Goldsun wins management right for second storage centre at Taipei Harbour
Published: 19 July 2007

Goldsun Development & Construction Co., one of Taiwan’s leading construction firms, recently announced it has won the tender for the management right to the second storage and transportation center at the Taipei Harbor on the BOT (build-operate-transfer) basis. 
 
Goldsun is the second domestic firm, following Chia Hsin Cement Co., to acquire the management right for a storage and transportation center at the Taipei Harbor. Goldsun said it would invest NT$2 billion (US$60.97m) to operate the second storage and transportation center. Still, the company wouldn’t publicize details related to the BOT contract, saying that such information will go public after September.  
 
Over the past few years, Goldsun has been aggressive to set up its cement business in mainland China. With the acquisition of the management right to the second storage and transportation center, the company will have a wholly owned location to suitably store construction materials as cement, sand and gravel imported from mainland China.  
 
Taipei Harbor is viewed as the island’s most important transit hub for the movement of sand, gravel and cement across the Taiwan Strait. It will also play a key role in the distribution of bulk and sundry goods in northern Taiwan.
