Cement Update

My Home Industries cement unit goes on stream

December 2009

My Home Industries Ltd has commercially started production at its fourth cement plant in Visakhapatnam district, with an annual capacity of 1.3 mn tonne. The product was launched under the brand name, Maha cement. The company’s total cement capacity is 4.5 mn tonne and aims to take it up to 10 mn tonne in the next five years. Plans include Greenfield units as well as acquisitions to reach the target.

My Home Industries had a 50-50 tie-up with Ireland-headquartered CRH. The group had invested Rs 300 crore in the fourth cement plant for which the machinery was imported from Germany. The Visakhapatnam Steel plant will supply the slag required and the clinker will be brought from their Nalgonda plant. The plant has two separate machines for clinker and slag grinding.
