KENYA CEMENT COMPANIES
Demand for cement, a key economic indicator, is expected to remain strong throughout this year as a result of infrastructure projects and home building currently underway in the country, industry players say.
Athi River Mining’s deputy managing director Surendra Bhatia said the cement market in this quarter continues to be strong and has maintained its growth trend. “In terms of ARM cement business – as compared to the same period last year - the trend has been positive. The cement market continues to grow and is operating to capacity in this business segment,” he said.
Cement firms, Bamburi - who welcome competition as good for consumers as it is important in terms of product quality - East African Portland Cement Company (EAPCC) and Athi River Mining have been cranking up capacity. Cemtech Ltd, Devki and the Mehta Group are making new investments hot on the heels of those of Mombasa Cement.
