#CulturePH - Holcim highlights green, innovative solutions in Philconstruct, DPWH visits

Holcim Philippines, Inc., a leading provider of building solutions, takes part in the Davao leg of the prestigious construction trade show PhilConstruct, and it will display its portfolio of cutting-edge and environmentally friendly products that are assisting partners in advancing progress in the nation.

The physical and online booths of Holcim Philippines will be themed "Greenovate" to highlight the company's enlarged selection of cutting-edge and environmentally friendly building solutions that are now offered in Mindanao. Those who are unable to travel to Davao for the display may view it online at PhilConstruct.com.

Holcim Aqua-X, the first water-repellent cement in the Philippines, will be one of the items on display at its PhilConstruct pavilion in SM Lanang from September 8 to 10. Holcim Aqua-X, which was introduced in Davao last April 2021, is  improved with water-repellant boosters to increase the resistance of structures to moisture damage.

The ECOPlanet product, which has a carbon footprint that is at least 30% lower than that of regular cement, will also be highlighted at the Holcim stand. ECOPlanet, which was launched in Mindanao this July, enables partners to construct long-lasting infrastructure while exhibiting greater environmental sensitivity.

In addition, visitors can learn more about the company’s other exciting building solutions such as flagship general purpose cement Holcim Excel, road infrastructure cement Holcim Solido and dry mix products Tile Adhesive and Skim Coat. Holcim Philippines’ range of building solutions has been used to build important infrastructure that support progress and uplift people’s lives in Mindanao such as the Davao International Airport, Davao Coastal Road, Davao Bypass Road, and the Tagum City Flyover.

Holcim Philippines Senior Vice President and Head of Retail Sales Albert Leoveras: “We are excited to once again have a physical booth for the PhilConstruct and looking forward to engaging with visitors on our stronger range of eco-friendly and performance enhancing building solutions. We are confident that people will come away impressed seeing that we have the right products for the right applications to help build greener, smarter and for all in Mindanao.”

In a related development, Holcim Philippines also recently completed a courtesy call to Department of Public Works and Highways Undersecretary Maximo Carvajal and Bureau and Research Standard OIC-Director Reynaldo Tolentino to reiterate the company’s readiness to support the government in building and maintaining essential infrastructure for the country's development though its innovative and sustainable range of products.

The discussion focused on the performance of Holcim Philippines’ road repair solution SuperFastCrete in maintaining major urban roads and the commitment to produce more blended cement products to help the government's decarbonization drive.
