Tuesday, May 6, 2014
Mexico's Cemex, one of the world's largest cement companies, has begun construction on a new $55 million cement grinding plant in Nicaragua.
The Monterrey-based company said the new plant will boost cement production capacity in the Central American country by 440,000 tonnes annually, or by 104 percent, boosting the country's housing and infrastructure development.
Cemex said the new plant in Ciudad Sandino on the outskirts of the capital Managua, will eventually include two grinding mills and is expected to be completed by the end of 2017.
