Taiwan’s Asia Cement joins WCA as a Corporate Member

The World Cement Association has announced it has further expanded its international network of members by welcoming Asia Cement, a Taiwan-based company principally engaged in the production, transportation and sales of cement and clinker, as a Corporate Member.

As well as deploying eco-friendly equipment, the company uses the most modern rotary kilns and has also introduced a waste-heat recycling generator to transform waste heat and hot air into electricity. In addition, Asia Cement has established storage and transportation facilities in the Keelung, Taichung, Kaohsiung, and Hualien harbors to lower transportation costs.

Asia Cement produces five million tons of clinker annually from its three plants located in Hsinchu, Hualien and NanHwa, Taiwan. The Hualien plant received an Environmental Protection Award from the Taiwan Environmental Protection Agency for three consecutive years.

Founded in 1957, the company sells its products to Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong, North America, Africa, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia. Asia Cement is also engaged in marine transportation, investment businesses, and the manufacture and trading of stainless products through its subsidiaries. Moreover, Asia Cement began to invest in China from 1994. Currently, with the production and sale bases in Jiangxi, Sichuan, Hubei, Yangzhou, and Shanghai, the total cement production capacity in China reaches 36 million MT. Asia Cement (China) Holdings Corporation was listed on the Main Board of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in 2008. Asia Cement (China) Holdings Corporation will continue to expand capacity through strategy cooperation, or merger & acquisition.
