Setting New Trend in Cement Industry
Kanodia Group, an ISO certified professionally managed company was formed by two young and budding entrepreneurs, Vishal Kanodia and Gautam Kanodia, who started off with the trading of the cement, worked hard day, build a reputation and finally installed their own cement grinding unit in Bulundsahar, Uttar Pradesh.
Normally Clinker, the main constituent for production of cement, is being produced in the states where limestone are in abundance. Cement produced in the main clinkerisation plant reaches to end customers through rail and road network which results in storage of surplus material in warehouse and consume it according to the demand. Thus cement is used by the consumer after around 8 to 10 days of manufacturing and after going through various levels of handling leading to increase in cost. Due to multiple handling during transporatation, customers also received less weight. Cement being a voluminous product, Logistic cost is more and ultimately customers has to pay more and receive less cement. Keeping in view of the above factors kanodia group has decided to install a cement grinding unit around 50 km away from Delhi.This was the year- 2011 the first cement grinding unit of capacity 1000 TPD became operational in Bulandsahar and known as Kanodia Cement Limited. The young and dynamic brothers incorporated best practices of cement grinding and production in their plant and began supplying cement to nearby markets. Their aim was to ensure daily supply of freshly ground cement to the consumers without any hassle.It was the foresight of Kanodia brothers to reduce the logistic cost for the end user because of which they started their production units right near to the consumption markets.At present, they are covering the booming market of these regions with their cement and have won accolades and acclamation for their work and supply chain.
Over a period of time the Group decided to built and operate the plant for main cement producers and supply cement to them.
