Published: 09 September 2015

Colombia-based cement producer Cementos Argos has completed its entry into the Puerto Rican cement market by launching its brand locally. The company is importing cement through a terminal, of which it assumed leadership since 1 May 2015.

“Through this new receipt, storage and distribution terminal, we are making all of our experience, knowledge and innovation available to the local market. All of these elements together, in combination with our personalised technical advice and industrial professionalisation programmes, make up Argos’ value promise: support and accompaniment,” says Mauricio Ossa, the VP for Cementos Argos’ Caribbean and Central American Regional Division.

Puerto Rico is the most recent stage in the internationalisation process of Cementos Argos, providing a key stepping stone to the Caribbean region.

“Puerto Rico complements our existing logistics platform, allowing us to efficiently interconnect strategic production assets with our main markets, providing us with an enhanced level of operational flexibility that fits in perfectly with our strategy,” Mr. Ossa concludes.
