SCG adds one more plant in Cambodia
Siam Cement Group (SCG) is expanding in the Cambodian construction sector with the making of a third cement plant. Kampot Cement - in which SCG is a major shareholder - began construction of the third plant last year with operations due to start in 2018. The new plant is expected to produce 1.8 million t/y of cement, according to Somwang Manpimonchai, the head of SCG's Cambodian business, and supply the domestic market, as well as exporting to Thailand. Cambodia's construction industry is expected to continue to grow strongly as the government pushes infrastructure development and a building boom continues in the country.
