Holcim markets new product
Published: 17 October 2005

Vietnamese bricklayers demonstrated how to use a new cement of Holcim Vietnam apparently called “Build and Bowl” (sic) at Tan Cang Tourist Park during a customer meeting last week.   This product is packed in 50-kilo bags and are said to be highly-adhesive, time-saving, and suitable for construction finishing.   Mike Doyle, General Director of Holcim Vietnam, says the new cement is marketed at VND870,000 a ton (approx US$55/t). Established in 1994, Holcim Vietnam operates three factories in the country, and has already established such cement products as Extra Durable, Quick Cast, Ready Flow, and Mass Pour.
