CRH, AEV, and RCBM meet PNoy at the sidelines of Paris conference

President Benigno S. Aquino III recently met with representatives from CRH, AEV and Republic Cement and Building Materials (RCBM) at the sidelines of the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris.

CRH Asia President Ken McKnight, CRH Group SVP for Group Strategy & Development Noel O’Mahony, Republic Cement Services CEO Don Lee, and AEV FVP Roman Azanza updated Mr. Aquino on key developments after the successful acquisition by CRH and AEV of Lafarge Republic Incorporated, now renamed RCBM.

AEV’s investment in RCBM represents the Aboitiz Group’s long-term commitment to support the country’s infrastructure needs and to participate in nation building in a big way. The strategic AEV-CRH partnership combines Aboitiz’s local business knowledge and experience with CRH’s global expertise in the cement industry.
