It dovetails with our plans of increasing capacity and expanding our outreach in untapped markets in a phased manner to stay in step with the demand growth as it progresses over the years. We plan to increase our cement production capacity to 25 MTPA by FY 2024-25 and have also developed a roadmap for 30 MTPA of cement capacity in the next few years”.

The company plans to scale up its manufacturing capacities for the production of Grey Cement to fulfill the enhanced demand across India. Bolstered with the latest additions including a newly built grinding unit at Hamirpur (Uttar Pradesh) along with its integrated cement plant in Panna, the overall capacity will reach 20.50 MTPA once the Ujjain unit is commissioned. These expansions reinforce the company’s growing footprint in central and northern India and its commitment to accelerate the socio-economic development of the region.

As we keep pushing our boundaries, consolidating our market position is a major priority that’s aligned with the company’s vision of sustainable and profitable growth. This will further provide an impetus to the sector and address the demand for Cement in Northern and central India. Through this addition, we will not only continue to contribute towards nation-building but also create numerous employment opportunities in the state.”
