Cementos Pacasmayo, a leading Peruvian supplier of cement and construction materials, recently announced that it has launched commercial production from its new Piura facility.
The first ton of cement from the Piura facility was produced and shipped last week. It will be the most modern cement plant in Latin America, featuring a multi-fuel kiln. Final capacity will be 1.6 million tons of cement per year and 1 million tons of clinker per year.
“I am delighted to announce the beginning of commercial operations at the Piura plant, an important milestone for Cementos Pacasmayo and the Peruvian cement industry,” CEO of Cementos Pacasmayo Humberto Nadal said. “Piura will offer our clients high-quality cement, with improved logistics, while simultaneously lowering our cost of production.
“We continue to execute this important project on time and under budget, demonstrating our expertise in large-scale, advanced facilities. We look forward to moving the plant along its production curve, creating value for all stakeholders,” Nadal said.
Cementos Pacasmayo is the only cement manufacturer in the Northern region of Peru. With more than 57 years of operating history, the company produces, distributes and sells cement and cement-related materials, such as concrete blocks and ready-mix concrete. Cementos Pacasmayo’s products are primarily used in construction, which has been one of the fastest-growing segments of the Peruvian economy in recent years.
