Taiheiyo to increase Philippine capacity
25 June 2018

Taiheiyo has allocated PHP3.5bn for a new cement line in San Fernando, Cebu. At present the works produces 7350tpd and the project aims to raise output potential to 16,350tpd by the end of next year.

Romeo Gebilaguin, Taiheiyo's environment and safety manager, said that as demand for cement grows, the plant has to double its production capacity. "We will be needing additional manpower by then, hire more workers. This will give job opportunities to Cebu with six per cent of them coming from San Fernando," Mr Gebilaguin said.

Taiheiyo will strictly follow regulations mandated in the Philippine Mining Act, particularly those that concern the protection of the environment, he added. The company has earmarked PHP3.63m to upgrade the plant’s dust emission control systems.
