Lafarge to increase cement production capacity
Lafarge Cement Zimbabwe will be increasing its cement production capacity to 0.5Mt/yr from its current 0.37Mt/yr.
The company has set aside capital to the tune of US$15m to de-bottleneck production process and boost volumes. Lafarge has already spent about US$5m on plant refurbishments over the past five years. The company is now conducting feasibility studies to setup a new manufacturing plant to complement the existing one.
