Cement maker Lafarge Malaysia Bhd said the increase in fuel prices would have a definite effect on the cost of its products.
“The increase would naturally have an impact on businesses in terms of transportation cost for both production and delivery to the market,” said a spokesman from the company.
“We understand the need for this subsidy rationalisation exercise by the Government. We are evaluating the overall impact of the fuel price increase to our businesses before taking appropriate measures.”
Lafarge Malaysia, which built its first cement plant in 1953 in Rawang, is one of the largest cement producers in the country.
Currently, the company is a cement supplier to the KLIA2 project and the Manjung and Tanjung Bin power plant projects.
