The road stabilization project in the Galápagos Islands has become a reference work for Holcim Ecuador. In three months and 70 work days, our teams completed the road stabilization with the highest quality and care for the environment. The use of local products, the improvement of local economies, and the operational challenges made this project a source of pride for Holcim Ecuador. Trust and support from the entire organization have helped the teams to carry on their daily tasks with high motivation and to sacrifice time with their families in order to achieve this landmark outcome. #Galapagos #GalapagosIslands #OnlyLafargeHolcimCan #HolcimEcuador #roads #roadstabilization #logistics #cement
