CAGAYAN de Oro residents and nearby towns will now have faster and more accessible way of buying cement from Holcim Philippines as it opened its new warehouse in the city last Friday.
William Sumalinog, regional operating head of Mindanao Sales, said opening the warehouse and office in Cagayan de Oro City is part of Holcim Philippines commitment to better serve customers in the region.
“The warehouse and office will make Holcim products more accessible, which is the fulfillment of our promise to serve better our Cagayan business partners and customers. They won’t have to go to the Lugait plant anymore to buy Holcim cement,” he said.
Sumalinog added that the warehouse is Holcim Philippines’s vote of confidence in Cagayan de Oro City’s development path, and a solid proof of the company’s intention to stay in the city market for the long term.
The Holcim Philippines official said customers from Bukidon, Misamis Oriental and Caraga areas are some of the beneficiaries of the warehouse’s opening. Aside from making it easier for customers to do business with Holcim, Sumalinog noted that the warehouse will benefit the community due to the jobs it will create and business it will generate for nearby establishments.
The Holcim Philippines office and warehouse, which can house up to 100,000 cement bags, are located at GTS Building, Corrales Extension, Cagayan de Oro City.
