Mexico: Cemex Mexico has signed an agreement with the state government of Puebla for the repair of 5km of road near Tepeaca. The El Sol de Mexico newspaper has reported that under the agreement Cemex will supply hydraulic concrete for the works. The company plans to first repair a 3km stretch of the road, then complete the remaining 2km in 2022.
President Juan Romero said “The purpose of Cemex is to build a better future. That is the reason that drives us to get up every day. We started at home, by building it for the more than 12,000 employees who work in the company and we made sure that everyone found in Cemex the best place to work and develop personally and professionally; but we also do it for our clients, with products of the highest quality and giving the greatest focus and attention to all the projects in which we participate, from the smallest expansion or remodeling of a small rural house to the large infrastructure works that they are underway in the country.”
In 2019 and 2020 the company invested US$3.5m in social projects in Puebla State. It repaired 4.5km of roads and donated 160t of concrete.
