Carib Cement to spend US$1 million to upgrade packaging plant
The island's sole cement producer, Caribbean Cement Company, says it will be spending some US$1 to upgrade its packaging plant over the Easter weekend.
This after mechanical problems disrupted operations and caused a shortage of cement on the market.
Corporate Communication and Public Relations Manager at Carib Cement, Sophia Lowe Pinnock, says overall, the company will be spending US$18 million on repairs and upgrading works.
She says the new equipment and machinery have already arrived in the island.
In the meantime, Carib Cement is assuring that enough cement is available for the local market.
Carib Cement says it has suspended all exports until supplies on the local market are normalised.
