BUSINESS competition in Lautoka is steadily growing and the construction of a concrete plant by Metromix Concrete Fiji is expected to add to that growth.

Metromix Concrete Fiji general manager Azad Ali says the plant would be one of the biggest in the West and would make the company a perfect competitor in the expanding business sector.

"We have major plans for the year set for Lautoka City," Mr Ali said.

"This will be our first fully automated environmentally-friendly batching plant built in Navutu, Lautoka.

"Our philosophy at Metromix is that no job is too specialised or small."

Mr Ali said the company's expansion in the West market was an opportunity to better serve the community they might have".

He said Metromix Concrete was fully-equipped with the right tools and technology.

The plant will take about two months to complete and will provide employment to about 50 people.
