Trinidad & Tobago: Barbados-based Rock Hard Cement has ended the operations of its Trinidad & Tobago-based subsidiary Rock Hard Distributors after losing a court case against the country’s Ministry of Trade and Industry in July 2021. The Barbados Today newspaper has reported that chief executive officer Mark Maloney said "Unfortunately, a limit on imports of 75,000t, combined with an import duty of 50%, means that Rock Hard Distributors simply cannot operate in Trinidad." He added, "it is with extreme sadness and disappointment, therefore, that we have closed our business in Trinidad and will now pursue opportunities in other Caribbean countries until such time as we are afforded equal treatment in our home country.”
