Chile: Cemento Polpaico has changed its commercial strategy following a poor year for the construction industry in 2016. The cement producer has moved from a geographical approach to one based on the profile and sector of its customers, according to the Diario Financiero newspaper. It has also reorganised its business into three segments: retail, construction and special projects.
LafargeHolcim agreed to sell its controlling stake in Cemento Polpaico to Inversiones Caburga in late 2016. However, the transaction is still awaiting approval by the Fiscalía Nacional Económica.
