ASR to Invest One Million Dollars to Improve Capacity of Tower Hill Plant

Celestino Ruiz

According to the ASR reps, since October of 2012 they have been trying to understand the issues and challenges particular to Belize, and have been meeting with all stakeholders to further that end. Coming out of those sessions, and as a good faith gesture, ASR will be making an investment of one million dollars to improve the cane-receiving capacity of the mill. Finance Director Celestino Ruiz told News Five that in time for the 2016 crop, a new dumping table will be installed to enable faster offloading of deliveries.

“Over this week we were able to approve an investment to the mill on a new dumping table, truck dumper, to alleviate some of the concerns during our outreach that we came across from the cane growers. It will provide higher unloading capacity that will benefit us from the standpoint of the testing that is done from a quality perspective because we were limited. We were limited by truck configurations, by the different offloading systems that we had, and this was a way to ease and provide flexibility to the cane-grower from a truck configuration standpoint and offloading standpoint. So it’s a good faith gesture from our part to show that our aspirations for Belize of growth for the future continue, and that we hope at the end of the STP we’re all engaged together moving this industry forward.”
