The event was attended by Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal, who was accompanied by the director of Holcim Mexico, Jaime Hill Tinoco, and the Mayor of Umán, Fredy de Jesús Ruz Guzmán.
Holcim México is a company dedicated to the production and commercialization of cement, ready-mix concrete, gravel, sand, and other products and services for construction.
The new plant established in Umán has the capacity to produce 650 thousand tons of cement per year.
Characteristics of the new plant
The new factory has two raw material reception areas, 2 silos of 500 tons each for limestone and gypsum, and a building with feed hoppers where the ideal mixture is prepared to be fed to the cement mill.
Likewise, a cement mill for 650 thousand tons of cement per year, 2 cement silos of one thousand tons each, a packaging machine with a capacity of 90 tons per hour and a palletizer, and equipment that accommodates the bags on the pallets.
