Much is expected of the construction sector as the government implements an ambitious plan to invest up to P8 trillion in upgrading infrastructure all over the Philippines by 2022.
To better support the wave of construction activity, building solutions provider Holcim Philippines, Inc. has started projects to raise its cement production capacity to 12 million metric tons by 2019 from the current 10 million metric tons.
While the company is improving its ability to supply this important material, it is having a more positive impact beyond providing cement to business partners and customers as they take on the enormous building challenge.
It is committed to demonstrating to its construction partners that innovations in building materials, from structural to finishing applications, play a key role in helping the local sector not just complete more projects but deliver these faster, more durable and cost-effectively.
“We are committed to help in improving building and construction in the Philippines. There’s a lot more beyond just building materials that Holcim is now providing through its services, training an accompaniment of our partners and customers in the construction industry with a clear goal to bring them more value, convenience and expertise from design to successful execution, be it a simple but important project, such as a dream house of a Filipino family or a massive building program on roads or infrastructure,” said Holcim Philippines head of marketing and innovation Paul Vu Huy Dat.
