We are very proud of our history and our company’s many achievements over this period, made by all of those who formed and are currently part of CEMEX,” said Fernando A. Gonzalez, CEO of CEMEX. “We have evolved from a local cement producer to a global company, integrating the best practices and talent into our worldwide operations.”
