Honduras: Construction Sealant and Additives Plant

The Mexican company Cemix has started operating, in Francisco Morazán, a production plant making dry mixes for the construction industry with capacity to produce more than 20,000 tons per month.

Friday, September 30, 2016

Cemix invested $7 million in the construction of the production plant, located in the community of Amarateca in Francisco Morazan. The aim is to supply dry or ready mix products to the construction market in Honduras, Nicaragua and the eastern region of El Salvador, explained the regional marketing manager for Central Cemix.

"... The factory plans to produce the entire range of products at the plant in Honduras, from the crushing of sand, preparing mixtures and addition of additives and cements, to packaging and commercialization of products in the markets of Honduras , El Salvador and Nicaragua.  So far, these markets were supplied from Guatemala and because of logistical issues, marked mainly by the geographical location of the country, they decided to come to Honduras in order to reduce the transportation costs (freight) and distances, leading to a reduction in delivery times for the products."

"... The plant will have an installed production capacity of over 20,000 tons of products per month, twice what is currently occurring in Guatemala. 45% of this production goes to markets in Nicaragua and the eastern part of El Salvador and the rest will be sold in the domestic market, but they have not ruled out leveraging the installed capacity in order to export to the Caribbean."
