Local cement manufacturer, Carib Cement, says its US$40 million expansion project is on track.
 
Speaking at a factory tour, led by the Jamaica Manufacturers and Exporters Association (JMEA), Managing Director Jorge Martinez said the project should be done by the first quarter of 2025.
 
He said the project will increase cement production by 30 per cent. 
 
Training
 
Meanwhile, Mr. Martinez said the company is investing in more training for its workforce.
 
Three weeks ago, what's dubbed the "CEMEX Campus" was launched to bring in more university students into the company, and offer hands on training.
 
Upskilling for the existing workforce is also being done. 
 
"We have some professionals in the development programme here. It's a good example of how we are investing in the future of the people. That is the good way of continuing this greater growing of Jamaica. We are nurturing with this a pool of talent poised to drive innovation and excellence across our organisation," said Mr. Martinez.
