Davao cement plant hikes capacity by 243%


    Holcim recently inaugurated its new facilities in Davao to raise its annual production capacity by 700,000 metric tons (mt) to 2.4 million mt.

    Holcim completed the expansion program of its Davao plant in June.

    The company installed a new pipe for loading cement to the silos from the pier, eco-hoppers to improve dust emissions and an overhead crane.

    When the Davao plant opened in 1968, it only had an annual capacity of less than 200,000 mt.

    “Now it is capable of producing more than 10 times that, reflecting our company’s resolve to support the sustained growth and development of this region,” said John Stull, Holcim Philippines president and chief executive officer.
