Cementos Fortaleza’s new 1Mta greenfield plant in Santiago de Anaya, Hidalgo, Mexico, has been inaugurated.

The official launch took place in the presence of Elementia president, Francisco Del Valle Perochena, along with Mexico’s Minister of the Economy, Ildefonso Guajardo Villarreal, and Hidalgo’s state governor, Franciso Olvera.

“After 70 years a new cement company is born in the country; we are very proud and committed to participate in this industry,“ said Mr Del Valle Perochena.

Output from the plant will mainly be destined for central Mexican markets.

Lafarge currently has a 47 per cent share holding in the Mexican cement producer.
