New Cement plant in Gonaives, Siman Lakay, a $300 Million investment

Haiti will soon become a cement manufacturer once again. With an investment of 300 Million US dollars by both international and Haitian investors, a brand new cement plant called Siman Lakay will be constructed in the locality "La Pierre", in Gonaives. This new cement plant is expected to both reduce our dependency on import and also create jobs. Siman Lakay will have a capacity to produce about 2 million tons of cement per year and create more than 2,200 jobs in the long term.


A 35-megawatt power plant will be built to run the new cement plant and provide electricity to a new village that will be built in the area for the 2,500 employees of the plant. Construction is expected to begin on January 13, 2016.
