Carib Cement Brings Concrete Solution to David’s Hill
On Friday, August 18, the company proudly opened 300m of concrete roadway in the David’s Hill Community. This Community is nestled in the Hills of the Blue Mountains and supplies one of Jamaica’s favorite exports – Blue Mountain Coffee, among other cash crops that feed Jamaica.
Carib’s Cements investment in the project included the cement and the expertise to construct the roadway in a challenging terrain, with gradients in excess of 30 degrees. Members of the community and Member of Parliament for the area, the Most Honorable Juliet Holness, expressed their heartfelt gratitude to Carib Cement. During Mrs. Holness’ expression of thanks, she used the opportunity to champion the concrete road solution, inviting influential persons to migrate to this durable option, especially for the rural roads in Jamaica.
Carib Cement is happy to have made this investment in infrastructure to facilitate agriculture and help the people of Jamaica. Carib Cement…Building a Greater Jamaica!
Carib Cement Invests in Sports
Once again, Carib Cement’s commitment to corporate social responsibility was highlighted with the inauguration of the newly refurbished and upgraded Donmair Sporting Complex last Thursday, August 17, by the Member of Parliament, Minister Karl Samuda, and General Manager Mr. Peter Donkersloot.
This community now boasts of having a world class facility as Carib’s investment resulted in the refurbishment of the football field, the netball/basketball court as well as repairs to the walls and fencing of the facility. The complex was also upgraded with viewing stands, bathrooms and a small office. As a result, the residents of the Common and Beverlydale communities are now well equipped to accommodate competing teams from other communities.
Members of the communities who were in attendance at the ceremony expressed their appreciation and gratitude by using the facilities as soon as the formalities were completed. Another sound investment by Carib Cement.
