Since its establishment, PCAL had been primarily in the business of manufacturing and selling cement. With the emergence of new challenges, particularly in the form of gradual depletion of limestone deposits, aging machinery and ever increasing market competition, both external and domestic, PCAL is constantly reviewing both the internal and external environments to re-position itself for growth and sustenance.
