14 November 2016

Cemento Regional has started operating a plant in Escuintla, Guatemala, which has capacity to produce 8000 bags of cement per day with its new Cemengal Plug&Grind® Classic grinding plant.

Cemento Regional has invested US$12.2m in the construction and commissioning of the 12tph modular grinding plant, which will supply the product to its three stores in the department of Guatemala.

"...Cemento Regional will start selling in its branded stores in El Naranjo, Calzada La Paz and on the road to El Salvador. The company's plan is to set up similar plants in Acajutla, Chinandega and San Pedro Sula, with which it will be able to reach the rest of Central America," says El Periodico, a local news source.

Local sources report that the company is importing clinker from Peru, while pozzolan is being shipped in from Villa Nueva and the gypsum that is needed comes from Coban, Alta Verapaz, Guatemala.
