The World Cement Association announced that Indonesian cement producer Cemindo Gemilang is the latest addition to its international membership, which currently spans 34 countries. The firm joins as a corporate member.
“As we work to address the key global challenges facing the cement industry, in particular the goal of full decarburization by 2050, it is important that we engage dynamic emerging-market players. We are delighted to welcome Cemindo Gemilang to the WCA,” said Ian Riley, chief executive of the WCA.
The company is the producer of Semen Merah Putih brand cement as well as ready-mixed concrete, which is available throughout Indonesia. Cemindo is also a major producer in Vietnam, through its Chinfon Cement subsidiary.
“At Cemindo Gemilang, we want to become one of the world’s leading building materials companies, and do so by adopting innovative and eco-friendly solutions,” said Vince Indigo, president commissioner of Cemindo. “In today’s rapidly evolving global cement sector we believe the new and significant challenges can best be tackled together. The WCA has provided a strong global voice for the cement industry and we look forward to contributing to future discussions, working with its leaders and members to share ideas, insights and best practice.”
