The 3-year-old cement mixer is making its way into China, where it has been sold as a supplement to water.
The company said Thursday it was expanding its China production by adding an additional 1,000 cement mixer units to its current plant in the southern province of Guangdong.
The 3s unit, which weighs about 2,000 pounds, is the company’s biggest to date.
The additive has become a big hit in China, making it a hot topic among manufacturers of cementing products.
The Chinese market is booming with consumers flocking to its low cost and high-quality ingredients.
The cement additive is the only product in the market that has a clear safety label that warns of the potential for adverse health effects, according to China’s Ministry of Health.
3s was named “World’s Most Popular Mixer” in a recent survey conducted by Dow Jones & Sohn Research.
Dow Jones said the 3s has been available in the United States for about a year and a half.
The product is manufactured by a Shanghai-based company, Cube Mixing, and is available in China and Hong Kong.
The cube mixing company is based in Shanghai, but is owned by the Shanghai Municipal Development and Reform Commission, the China Development Bank and other government agencies, the company said.
It did not say how much the additive has sold in China.
