Mbeya Cement launches new brand with Lafarge logo
Mbeya Cement Company Ltd (MCC), the manufacturers and distributors of Tembo Cement, in a bid to improve their products and services, launched a new bag with green and brown colours for their products. Mbuvi Ngunze, General Manager, MCC said that the new look Tembo Cement bag was part of the firm's celebration to commemorate Lafarge's 10 years in Tanzania. Lafarge owns 65 per cent stakes in the company, while the government and National Social Security Fund (NSSF) own 25 per cent and 10 per cent, respectively. The French company came to Tanzania in 2001 by investing in MCC. "Our new bag has mainly been designed to overcome cement leakage problems during loading and unloading of our product from one point to another," said Ngunze emphasising that the quality and quantity of Tembo Cement remains the same that customers have known and experienced over the years. "Lafarge company, the majority shareholders in Mbeya Cement, has been in Tanzania for 10 years now and we think it is an opportune moment to refresh our look and customer promise by commemorating this milestone with a new look bag," he added.
