11 July 2019

Holcim Philippines has completed its 0.7Mta expansion project at its Davao facility, which has been undertaken to support the strong construction activity in Mindanao, according to a press release.

"Our company is determined to continue supporting the development of Davao and the rest of Mindanao. These initiatives strengthen our ability to contribute to the progress of the region at this time of robust growth," said John Stull, CEO.

The expansion involved the activation of a finish mill and installation of a new pipe for loading cement from the pier to its silos, eco-hoppers to improve dust emissions and an overhead crane. Cold commissioning started in April while full production began on 20 June. 

The company is expected to hold a ceremony in August to inaugurate the facilities with its partners in the public and private sector.
