ROCK HARD CEMENT’s first shipment to Trinidad and Tobago is clearing the Port of Spain docks.
A statement from the Barbados operation, which is in a battle with Trinidad Cement Limited for a share of the lucrative Caribbean market, said yesterday the product was being discharged from the ship and had already begun clearing the port.
Chief executive officer and chairman of Rock Hard Cement, Mark Maloney, refused to be pulled into rhetoric from TCL chairman Wilfred Espinet implying there was a “war” between Rock Hard Cement and TCL.
Maloney said: “For Rock Hard Cement, there is no war. In war there are no winners. We do not believe ‘collateral damage’, a phrase used by TCL’s chairman, is acceptable; we are committed to building up, not tearing down.” (RRM)
