In a recent press event in Taguig, Republic Cement President and Chief Executive Officer Nabil Francis said the need for aiding the construction sector was increasing, as the government pushes its massive infrastructure drive.

It (infrastructure program) is changing the shape of our country. It is accounting for the 33 percent of demand for cement,” Francis said.Dubbed as Fast Laboratory On Wheels (FLOW), the laboratory built from a mini-truck with a pull-canopy features equipment and apparatuses needed for complex solution testing.
