Holcim Mexico to build new plant in Yucatan
18 October 2019

Holcim Mexico has announced that it will construct a new facility in Umán, Yucatan, representing an investment of around US$40m. The grinding plant will have a 0.65Mta capacity and is part of the company’s efforts to expand in the southeast of the country, according to a company press release.

"Expanding our operations in the Yucatan Peninsula demonstrates our long-term commitment to the region and the country. The area presents great growth opportunities in a strategic market for Holcim Mexico. With the new plant, we will be able to optimise our local solutions with greater benefits for our customers and communities," said Jaime Hill Tinoco, CEO of Holcim Mexico.

When the works enters operation in 2020, it is expected to receive clinker from Macuspana, Tabasco, and Orizaba, Veracruz. It will be built on the premises where the company already has a distribution centre.

The investment in the project would be in addition to the one announced by the company at the beginning of the year, where it considered US$30-50m in 2019 to improve operational efficiency and its distribution network.
