Donald Trump has stood his ground on the “WALL” idea . He’s been seen on Television since the election talking extensively about the project.
He’s now drawn the attention of a big player in the concrete business that has the ability to pull this thing off. The ironic part here is the company is from Mexico…
Could Trump be that good? Could he not only have Mexico pay for the wall but have them build it too? That would be unprecedented for sure.
All kidding aside. This company is the real deal. By the sounds of it GCC is looking forward to working with Trump. The CEO said recently :“For the business we’re in, Trump is a candidate that does favor the industry quite a bit,”
Grupo Cementos de Chihuahua (GCC) located in Mexico is a major player in the construction materials arena. The company also has 3 plants in the U.S.
Recently the cement giant has offered its services to President-elect Donald Trump to build the “wall” between the United States and Mexico.
The 2,000-mile border needs to be protected from illegal immigrants crossing into the country.
70% of GCC’s sales already comes from the U.S.
Enrique Escalante (CEO of GCC) said that his company would benefit from Trump’s plan to invest in infrastructure.
It’s been reported by Reuters that GCC shares are trading at their highest since 2008.
Now I’m fully aware that this relationship would be 100% financially driven. But who can blame GCC for throwing their sombrero into the mix.
Whatever takes place, something needs to be done about illegal immigration. This project is going to rank up there with the Hoover Dam and the Panama Canal by the time it’s all said and done. One can only hope that it works as well as the aforementioned.
