Colombia: A new cement plant to be built at Rio Claro in the Sonsón municipality of Antioquia for Empresa Colombiana de Cementos (EcoCementos) will have a production capacity of 1.35Mt/yr. The company is a joint-venture between Spain’s Cementos Molins and Grupo Corona. Cementos Molins and Grupo Corona originally started working together in September 2015 when they formed an alliance to develop their cement businesses in the country, according to the El Tiempo newspaper. The plant is expected to be completed in mid-2019 whereupon it is hoped that it will capture 7% of the market. Once operational the plant will create 450 direct and indirect jobs.
