Building materials solutions supplier CEMEX is to invest over £5m into two new plastic packing lines for packed cement at its Rugby Cement Plant.
The development will significantly increase its packed cement capacity and allow the business to provide long term surety of supply to its customers.
Additionally, the investment will improve the design of the packed product so it can be better transported and stored.
CEMEX commercial director of UK Cement Craig Williamson, says: “We are very pleased to confirm plans to significantly enhance the plastic packing line at our Rugby Cement Plant.
“Packed cement is an important part of our UK business and this will greatly increase our capacity. This work will ensure we can continue to provide customers with the quality packed cement they need for their construction projects, while also offering further benefits during supply and storage of the product.”
Work will begin at Rugby Cement Plant early 2021 and is expected to be completed by the start of the second half of the year. The development will run alongside the existing operation so there will be no disruption to production.
