Puerto Rico: Cemex cement sales hit 55-year low
07 January 2015


In 2014, Cemex cement sales in Puerto Rico fell 10.6 per cent YoY to 24,000t, according to Enrique García, president of Cemex Puerto Rico.

The 55-year low has prompted the country’s largest cement producer to take action, including laying off 18 staff at its Ponce plant.

"We are being proactive after a thorough analysis of the subject. The aim is to ensure the future of our company. In a crisis we can not control, we are focussing our decisions on factors that themselves are within our reach. We have to look at instead of worrying, " Mr García said.
