Holcim will invest between 30 and US$50 million this year, which will be used to expand the company's distribution network, as well as its cement and ready-mix plants, in order to make progress in reducing emissions and improving efficiency.
"The plans are to continue developing the distribution network that we have, we also have very important investments in cement and concrete plants, in addition to continued investments in capacity expansion," said Rodolfo Montero, CEO of Holcim Mexico.
With a plant in Ramos Arizpe, Coahuila, the company has a distribution network of more than a thousand points of sale under the Disensa brand in Latin America and Mexico, the executive added.
Another part of the investments will be to continue moving to the use of clean energy and reducing emissions.
"These are investments to improve production efficiency. We are concerned about the environment, reducing emissions to the environment and recovering quarries, and many of these investments are not to produce more but better and more environmentally friendly," explained Montero.
