Two experts will arrive on the island tomorrow to assist The Caribbean Cement Company Limited (CCCL) with an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the release of a batch of 500t of faulty Carib Cement into the market. The experts are regional concrete expert, Dr. Robin Osbourne of the Faculty of Engineering at the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine Campus in Trinidad as well as an internationally respected expert in cement and concrete from Construction Technology Laboratories in the United States of America.

Alice Hyde, Marketing Manager of CCCL said the investigation is aimed at determining the factors that led to the breach of CCCL’s rigorous quality standards at the Rockfort Plant and to recommend the appropriate action to prevent a recurrence. "The company sincerely apologises to all users of its products who may have been affected by this recall," said Ms. Hyde.
