“Lafarge Romania has also decided to build an outdoor cement storage and uploading platform of a maximum capacity of 2,000 tonnes, at the same time with the commissioning of this new project, so that the number of simultaneous delivery points may increase to three, thus cutting the waiting times for the uploading of trucks,” says Edmund Piess, the manager of the company located at Medgidia.
