Caribbean Cement Company has said that it has suspended all cement exports as part of ongoing efforts to ease the shortage in the local market. The announcement by Caribbean Cement Company follows increasing complaints from stakeholders in the construction industry.
The company says the shortage is due to “challenges” in its packaging operations. The company says these challenges are being rectified through a number of initiatives.
One of those initiatives, the company says, is the suspension of exports in order to give priority to local trade. Caribbean Cement Company will embark on a major maintenance overhaul to restore stability in the local market.
