“The Middle East has long been an important market for cement, and we’re seeing a lot of interest from key players in the region as they look to build their international networks,” said WCA CEO Ian Riley. “We’re particularly pleased to have RCC on board, both because of their leading market position locally and their focus on sustainability, the environment and safety.”
RCC CEO Joey Ghose said: “After building a strong local business over nearly 40 years, we are now expanding internationally and WCA, with its global community and international outlook, is an excellent partner for us."
