CEMEX joins Panama in the celebration of the inauguration of the Panama Canal expansion as the main cement supplier for this globally impactful project.
CEMEX supplied close to a million tons of especially developed cement for the Canal expansion – considered the most important infrastructure project in the last 100 years.
In 2008 the company invested over $300 million to triple its production capacity in Panama to meet the country’s growing demand. Together with its technical capacity and international experience, this enabled CEMEX to supply the cement for this project. To guarantee supply, CEMEX Panama dedicated a production line exclusively for the Panama Canal expansion project.
