Tank-Weld & Carib Cement announce distribution deal, Jamaica
Published: 24 November 2015

Caribbean Cement Company Ltd and Tank-Weld Metals have come to an agreement for Tank-Weld Metals to distribute locally-produced Carib Cement to the Jamaican market.

In a joint media release the companies said that while the agreement is aimed at maximising the resources of both companies, it will also "enhance efficiencies, create local jobs, and be beneficial to customers, the travelling public, and the environment."

To enhance efficiencies in a logistics-driven economy, both companies have identified an opportunity to pioneer domestic maritime transport of a locally manufactured product, the release added.

Carib Cement will be transported by sea from the CCCL Rockfort Pier to the TW Metals Rio Bueno Port in Trelawny for further distribution to the northern-based construction market using Tank-Weld's distribution capabilities and strong customer service.
