Dalmia eyes Goa market

Dalmia Cement Bharat Ltd, the third largest cement producer in India, is looking to larger market presence in Goa as part of its India expansion. The Goa market will be catered to by the company´s newly commissioned 2.5 mn t plant in Belgavi, said M K Swaminathan, Executive Director, Sales. It is the eleventh manufacturing facility of Dalmia Cement in India.

Cement consumption in Goa is expected to receive a boost from ongoing infrastructure projects and demand likely to grow 5-6 per cent in the coming year. To grab a larger market share Dalmia Cement is started beefing up its dealership network in the state through talks with 15 dealers initially. The company will be supporting them with end-to-end marketing, technical and logistics support.

Dalmia Cement´s senior manage-¡ment team was in Goa to announce the going-on-stream of the latest Belgavi facility and to meet up with dealers to fortify the marketing. Our cement brand was already present here but through our latest manufacturing facility we expected to easily service Goa customers, said Pankaj Madhukar Phadnis, Dy Executive Director, Sales.
