An American cement plant that processes cement in Mexico has shut down after months of shutdowns.
The cement plant in Mexico City’s Cancun, Mexico, is expected to reopen in about two weeks, the cement company, El Pueblo Cement, said in a statement.
Mexico has shuttered about a quarter of its cement plants and more than half of its processing plants in recent years as the country has wrestled with a spike in earthquakes.
El Pueblon Cement said that the plant’s production has fallen by almost 40 percent since the quake.
The cement industry has struggled for years to compete in a global economy dominated by China, where prices have soared and labor shortages are severe.
