CEMEX invests to expand in mortar solutions in main EMEAA Markets
Responding to strong customer demand in key metropolitan markets, CEMEX EMEAA is already investing in operational improvements and mortar capacity expansions in Spain, UK and Poland, while also introducing selected mortar solutions in Israel and Egypt. Following the recent investment in a new drying facility in Buxton UK, further developments are planned for our Spanish San Vicente, Buñol, Rubí and Muel mortars plant in early 2021, followed by investments at CEMEX sites in Germany, Poland, France and Czech Republic in the next two years.
The innovative STREETPAVE three-stage bedding, bonding and jointing mortar paving system for more resilient pavements was recently launched and an enhanced tiles adhesives range is currently being promoted. CEMEX is constantly finding new bulk, bagged and dry-silo opportunities by optimising its manufacturing technologies across various countries to better address Customer needs: for example, the provision of soil stabilisation material for the Grand Paris in both bulk bags and silos and the launch of bagged M4 and M12 natural mortar to complement silo and bulk bag options.
CEMEX EMEAA Regional President Sergio Menendez highlighted “We recognise the growing demand for innovative mortars solutions for both new-build and existing building stock to cut carbon emissions in our cities and support the EU Renovation Wave. Our broad range of dry-silo, bagged and ready-to-use mortars is enhanced by expert solutions for street-paving, rendered walls, tunnel solutions, plasters and specialist sands."
