Arawak Cement Expands Its Product Range

Barbados-based Arawak Cement Company has expanded its services with the recent launch of its Arawak Pre-Cast Concrete and Pre-Engineered Concrete Buildings Division.

According to Arawak, which is a member of the CEMEX-TCL Group, its precast concrete and pre-engineered concrete products are made with the highest quality of cement from the TCL Group in combination with CEMEX Admixture technologies.

“Arawak presents pre-fabricated concrete solutions designed to increase productivity at the job site, and at a better cost, ensuring greater savings to the customer. Additional features include, among others, pre-stressed beam and block-floor systems, insulated concrete walls, lightweight structural concrete and rapid-curing concrete.”

These technologies, the company said, were discussed at a seminar held at the Hilton Hotel in Barbados, where several members of the local and regional building community spoke about the opportunity for technical solutions developed by CEMEX, to optimise the process of production of concrete in the CARICOM community, including advanced concrete technology that will be used to address current and future climate challenges.

As a member of the CEMEX/TCL Group, Arawak says it now has access to over 100 years of experience and know-how, and that the new division offers a range of structural concrete in a portfolio that includes bridges, docks, jetties, low-cost housing, and pre-engineered concrete for multi-story commercial buildings and hotels. ¤
