    The following is taken from the company's website:

    Caribbean Cement Company Limited (Carib Cement), located in Rockfort, Kingston, has been producing a consistently high quality of portland cement using one hundred percent Jamaican raw materials since 1952. The raw materials used in the manufacturing process are all mined within ten miles of the plant. Carib Cement has as a subsidiary company Jamaica Gypsum and Quarries Limited (JGQ), which supplies the company with the gypsum used in the manufacture of its cement. The company exports its surplus gypsum and boasts its own ports for the shipment abroad of both its cement and gypsum.

     
    The plant is nestled in the foothills of the Blue Mountain Range. In 2012, the plant delivered 755,070 tonnes of cement. The company recently commissioned a new state of the art Kiln – Kiln 5 and Cement Mill – Mill 5. Unfortunately, it was forced to impair Kiln 3 and Mill 3 due to inactivity since 2008.
     
    It is a major contributor to the Jamaican economy and employs over 300 persons.
     
    Over 90% of structures present in Jamaica today were built using Carib Cement as it is commonly known.
