Scheduled to commence operations by the end of the year, the new facility is set to be one of Mexico's most modern and efficient, with a high level of automation and a strong focus on sustainability. Notably, the Macuspana plant will be the first in Mexico to produce cement with calcined clay, which can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 50% compared to conventional cement.

Jaime Hill, CEO of Holcim Mexico, emphasized the investment in Tabasco reflects the company's confidence in the potential of Mexico's southeast and its commitment to sustainable regional development. The expansion is expected to not only increase supply capacity to the states of Tabasco, Chiapas, Campeche, Yucatan, and Quintana Roo but also enhance Holcim's role in decarbonizing the construction industry by offering low-emission products, including the ECOPlanet range of cements.

The construction of the new grinding unit will create 800 jobs, and once operational, it will increase the plant’s workforce to more than 300 jobs.
