The Carib Cement Brand speaks to our world-class quality cement that is produced using 100% Jamaican raw materials such as gypsum and shale, which are mined through our Quarries within 12 miles of the plant.
Carib Cement has invested not only in state-of-the-art equipment and machinery, but also in physical infrastructure. This is evident in its kiln, after recent upgrades in August, 2016 has moved from producing 2,800 tonnes to 3,200 tonnes of clinker per day.
There is a great deal of local pride in our products and our people. It is important that as a country, we build and maintain adequate quantities of locally manufactured products, and ensure that manufacturers are creating jobs for locals. That investment in our indigenous Jamaican product is something the Carib Cement family is very proud of.
Carib Cement adheres to operating at international best standards, and competes on the global market. The veracity of this is reflected in the company’s certification to ISO 14001, as well as OHSAS 18001 and ISO 9000. “These systems and processes are beneficial to our sustainability and efficiency as they allow us to address concerns in a timely manner. Adhering to these standards also allows us to reduce ‘downtime’ which results in an increase in productivity”.
Over the years, Carib Cement has expanded its market reach from supplying only the local market to exporting to international markets.
