Sri Lanka: Insee Cement says it has eased a local cement shortage by operating at maximum production capacity and optimising its distribution channels. It reported a record output of 0.7Mt for the third quarter of 2021, according to the Colombo Post newspaper. The company also introduced two new import ships to help the situation.
Gustavo Navarro, the chief executive officer of Insee Cement Sri Lanka said, “We continued to fully support government regulations and industrial policies to first stabilise the market, and were able to deploy our island-wide distribution and dealership network to ensure an uninterrupted supply across the island. The loyalty and patience of our customers gave us that extra encouragement we needed to overcome the challenge.”
