Company History

        Responding to the Taiwan government’s second four-year economic development plan, Asia Cement Corporation (ACC) was founded on March 21, 1957 by Mr. Y.Z. Hsu and others. It built its first manufacturing plant in Hengshan Township, Hsinchu County. In 1973, in response to the government’s call to develop eastern Taiwan, the Company established its second plant in Hsincheng Township, Hualien County. Asia Cement and its “Skyscraper” brand cement have always occupied the core position in Taiwan’s cement business. For now, these two plants can produce 5 million MT of clinker annually.
        Asia Cement uses the most modern rotary kilns and introduces waste-heat recycling generators to transform waste heat and hot air into electricity. In addition, for lower cement transportation costs, Asia Cement established storage and transportation facilities in the Keelung, Taichung, Kaohsiung, and Hualien harbor. It also invested in the Group’s U-Ming Marine Transport Co., Ltd., and began using U-Ming’s bulk carriers to transport cement around Taiwan. The Company’s “Three Highs and One Low” strategy, high quality, high efficiency, high environmental protection, and low cost, along with its management capability, have given the Company the competitive edge to efficiently face challenges in the market.
        Asia Cement believes that economic growth and environmental protection can be achieved in parallel. At the beginning of the establishment of the Hualien Plant, the Company invested a lot of manpower and material resources to set up a greenhouse seedling system in the quarry to cultivate various indigenous plants and transplant them to the remnant walls of the excavation sites. The greening results have outstanding performance and have been repeatedly recognized by experts. Asia Cement introduces the most advanced dust collection equipment to effectively control the dust fall, keeping it far below the national standard. The Company has won the Enterprise Environmental Protection Award for 3 years. The Hualien plant has invested in circular economy, energy saving, and carbon reduction in recent years, and has achieved remarkable results The Portland cement produced by the Hualien plant has also won international recognition this year by receiving the ISO-14067:2018 (Greenhouse Gases Carbon Footprints of Products), the ISO 14046: 2014 (Greenhouse Gases Water Footprints of Products), and the optimizing level of the BS 8001: 2017 for circular economy model maturity through SGS certification, making Asia Cement the first cement producer to receive the certification for circular economy standard, carbon footprint and water footprint at the same time in the world. In March 2021, Asia Cement passed the Science-Based Reduction Target Initiative (SBTi), becoming the fourth cement plant in the world with a well-below 2°C target. The Company joined the Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA), and jointly committee in Sep. 2020 to reach 2050 Carbon Neutral goal with global peer of cement and concrete industry. In addition, we have built a butterfly ecological park based on the existing beautified environment of the Hualien plant, luring thousands of visitors to experience the beauty of nature and receiving high recognition from the general public.
        Besides establishing its core business, the Company also diversifies its investment by establishing Ya Tung Ready Mixed Concrete Co., Ltd. and Ya Li Precast & Prestressed Concrete Industries Ltd. Together with Far Eastern Construction Co., Ltd. and Far Eastern General Contractor Co., Inc., Asia Cement completed its vertical integration.
        ACC’s diversification strategic layout for the world not only includes the complete production and sales channels in Taiwan, it also has representative offices in Hong Kong and Singapore. Furthermore, it is also expanding into the world market, exporting cement to Southeast Asia, North America, Africa, and the Middle East Asia. Meanwhile, Asia Cement began to invest in China from 1994. Currently, with the production and sale bases in Jiangxi, Sichuan, Hubei, Yangzhou, and Shanghai, the total cement production capacity in China reaches 36 million MT. Asia Cement (China) Holdings Corporation has listed on the Main Board of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in 2008. Asia Cement (China) Holdings Corporation will continue expand capacity through strategy cooperation, or merger & acquisition.
       In the future, Asia Cement will keep maintaining its deep roots in Taiwan and continue moving forward by expanding in China and worldwide.
