Caribbean Cement Co Ltd (CCCL) is seeking to improve the usage of cement in the construction of roads with plans to double sales to this segment.

Speaking to the Jamaica Gleaner, Anthony Haynes, managing director of CCCL highlighted that cement roads last twice as long as asphalt surfaces. He added that project managers and the government may soon see the advantages and that demand is also increasing from private companies.

Revenue from this market to-date is approximately JMD17m of cement at today's value, Haynes noted. He is now projecting a doubling of revenue for the current year from the construction of roads as the company looks to “increase this business to a minimum of 2000m of concrete roadway per annum. This would translate to an additional JMD17m in revenue per annum,” he told the newspaper.
