Cemex Latam Holdings has inaugurated its expanded Arizona cement works in Guatemala. The project represents an investment of US$3.7m and will enable the plant to increase its production by 10 per cent to 0.545Mta.

In addition, the plant’s bagging facilities have been upgraded from 65tph to 95tph.

Jaime Muguiro, managing director of Cemex Latam Holdings, said that Guatemala has become a strategic location for the company. "Guatemala is a country with a lot of growth potential, we are looking for countries that need to build better welfare, where more housing is needed, infrastructure that allows a country to offer its population a much higher standard of living. We want to be part of that dream, that experience," said the manager.

"We are a company with more than 15 years of solid position in Guatemala and our products have built bridges, roads, schools, hospitals, dams. They have also helped to boost the market for construction materials in the country, which has been a great benefit for all Guatemalans, "said Rojo de Diego, country director of Cemex Guatemala.
