Large Thai firm Siam Cement Group (SCG) will open its first Myanmar showroom at 10 Mile in May, according to its country director Chana Poomee.
It aims to showcase products to its partners and dealers, while architects, developers and home owners will be able to explore a variety of building materials, he said at a press conference last week.
SCG is also developing a training program to educate dealers on product use and construction technology, while the company’s local authorised dealers will also received improved product booths.
“SCG is committed to enhance the expertise of the dealer network and empower them for long-term competitiveness,” he said.
The firm has also branched beyond cement by selling products for walls, roof and partitions in the country.
SCG has bet heavily on Myanmar, with construction of its first cement plan in the country now under way.
Chana Poomee said the plant in Mon State is 30 percent complete, with total expenditures coming to 12.4 billion baht (US$385 million).
It is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2016.
He also highlighted the firm’s work in a variety of CSR activities such as public health, educational support to students and community-building activities, including a facelift of the world’s largest reclining Buddha at Win Sein Taw Ya monastery in Mon State.
