Mexico's Cemex to widen U.S. distribution network to meet demand

MEXICO CITY, May 11 (Reuters) - Mexican cement maker Cemex is expanding in Southern California to meet increased demand with a distribution terminal in Los Angeles served by rail and a new aggregate loading system for a quarry in Victorville, the company said on Thursday.

Cemex, based in Monterrey, Mexico, said in a statement that it plans to complete the 14-acre terminal - which will lie near several of the Los Angeles area’s main freeways - in late 2017.

Cemex, one of the world’s biggest cement makers, has a major presence in the United States and said this year it was open to providing quotes to supply raw materials for U.S. President Donald Trump’s planned U.S.-Mexico border wall. (Reporting by Sharay Angulo; Editing by Tom Hogue)
