Cemex was awarded a supply contract for approximately 500,000 tons of cement to build a third set of locks as part of the Panama Canal expansion project.

Over the past two years, Cemex has invested about $300 million in Panamanian cement operations, tripling production capacity. This allowed it to satisfy Canal-related cement specifications and demand.

Cemex Central America President Jesus Gonzalez says, ìAs part of the contract, Cemex will provide specially designed products for the engineering requirements of the work and ensure supply, a result of investing in expanding our production capacity since 2008.î
