West China Cement has joined the World Cement Association.
The Chinese manufacturing group is one of the leading cement producers in Shaanxi Province, with a strong market position in eastern and southern Shaanxi and a presence in Xinjiang and Guizhou Provinces.
With over 40 years of development, the group has nearly 6,000 employees and production capabilities of 30 million tonnes of cement, 10 million tonnes of aggregate, and 10 million cubic meters of commercial concrete.
The group's cement production is geared towards the economic development of Western China, driven by the Chinese Government's "Western Development Policy" and the "Silk Road Economic Development Plan".
West China Cement says it serves the development needs of Shaanxi, Xinjiang, Guizhou and Western China, supplying cement products to the infrastructure, urban and rural construction markets. Its cement products are used in a variety of infrastructure projects such as highways, railways, bridges, hydroelectric power stations, water conservancy and water transfer projects. The group also focuses on serving both the urban and rural development needs of western China, an area which is experiencing rapid urbanisation and population resettlement, accompanied by housing and social infrastructure development.
The WCA is an indepeendent, not for profit association based in the UK that works on a global basis on behalf of the cement and clinker industry and its stakeholders.
