K. Wah Construction Materials (KWCM), a wholly owned subsidiary of Galaxy Entertainment Group, is a vertically integrated resources company supplying aggregates, ground granulated blastfurnace slag (GGBS), cement, and other downstream building materials, with a strong focus on creating value in a sustainable manner.

KWCM is the cornerstone on which the K. Wah Group has built its business for over half a century. As a pioneer in the quarrying industry, KWCM was granted the first contract quarry rights in Hong Kong in 1964. In 1997, the Company entered into a 17-year agreement with the Hong Kong Government for the Rehabilitation of Anderson Road Quarry. This 40-hectare land parcel will be progressively transformed into a green habitat and landform which is suitable for developing over 10,000 residential units.

KWCM has played a pioneering role to invest in the Mainland, supporting the philosophy of “Building the Betterment for the Country”. Protecting the environment and operating in a sustainable way has become a global trend. KWCM fully embraces this philosophy in its day-to-day operations, and continues to enhance its environmental performance and social responsibility in line with the objectives of sustainable development.

Through regional expansion and product diversification, the Company has successfully transformed into a fully integrated environmental-friendly enterprise with more than 3,000 staff (including joint venture companies). Today, its production facilities have extended from Hong Kong to Macau, and a number of major cities and industrial hubs in the Mainland, including Qianan, Sanhe, Nanjing, Maanshan, Tongling, Ezhou, Liupanshui, Anning, Baoshan, Puer, Qujing, Zhaotong, Shaoguan, Huidong and Shenzhen.

In early 2000s, KWCM entered into strategic partnerships with leading prominent iron and steel enterprises (including Beijing Shougang Group, Kunming Iron & Steel Group, Anhui Maanshan Iron & Steel Group, Nanjing Iron and Steel Group, Hubei Echeng Iron & Steel Co. and Guangdong Shaoguan Iron & Steel Group and Guizhou Shougang Shuicheng Iron & Steel Group) to produce GGBS, a value-added eco-product, which makes use of the by-product generated from the iron & steel production processes. In another step to achieve lower carbon emission, all cement production lines are equipped with advanced energy conservation systems, and the company has recently implemented a energy and carbon management system in line with the requirements of ISO 50001.
