Caribbean Cement Company to expand production

Jamaica: Caribbean Cement Company’s first phase of its expansion project is set for completion in 2025. The expansion will increase cement production by 30%.

Managing director Jorge Martinez said “When completed, this project will further reduce our CO₂ emissions and deliver increased output from 2600 to 2850t/day of clinker to meet the increased local demand for cement. We will also have the capacity to explore options for exporting to other countries within the Caribbean community. These exports will benefit Jamaica’s economy through foreign currency income.”

The US$40m plant expansion in Rockfort, Kingston is financed by the company, with 150 workers already on the project. The expansion was announced in 2022 and aims to strengthen Jamaica’s cement industry, reduce import reliance and support the regional construction sector. It will also support parent company Cemex’s sustainability targets, including CO₂ emission reduction and optimisation of heat consumption in cement production, as part of its Future in Action programme.
