Cemex strengthens presence in Guatemala

The total value of the investment is approximately US$ 25 million. Current grinding capacity at the plant is about 0.5 million metric tons per year. Following the completion of the project, production will increase approximately by 0.4 million metric tons to 0.9 million metric tons per year.
