Speaking at the event, Mr Ugarte said: “We are grateful to His Majesty’s Government for its support and cooperation in helping us thrive and flourish as the only local cement producing company since 1996. We are committed to bring forth more innovative products in the future. The market is changing and the demand for more quality product to support the local construction industry is growing. Therefore we believe the launch of the new 52.5 Brunei Cement is timely and will bring positive effects to the construction landscape and beyond”.
