Cimaf to produce cement in Douala, Cameroon
Cimenteries du Cameroun, which has been monopolising the cement market of Cameroon for last 48 years, now has a competitor in the region. Ciment de l´Afrique has begun selling cement from its new 500000 tpa plant in Douala, Cameroon. Cimaf has been present in the market through cement imported from Morocco. With the arrival of a new manufacturer cement prices in the country may begin to decrease. Along with this, Dangote Cement too, is in the process of building a grinding plant in Douala with a LM 53.3+3C Loesche mill. The 1.5 million tpa plant is scheduled to be completed in the first half of this year. The new capacity will reduce the shortage of cement in the country.
