Dalmia Cement decides to invest Rs 2,600 cr in Tamil Nadu within 3 years

Dalmia Cement (Bharat) Limited (DCBL) has decided to invest Rs 2,600 crore in Tamil Nadu over three years to set up three grinding facilities.

The new facilities, each with a capacity of two million tonnes (MT), would more than double the state's current capacity, which is currently 5.9 MT.

Besides this, an additional Rs 120 crore would be invested in the establishment of the Waste Heat Recovery System (WHRS).

The plants would be established at Sattur in Virudhunagar district in the south, Arakkonam in Chennai, and the Salem-Coimbatore area in the west by the country's fourth-largest cement production company.

The cement company wants to extend its manufacturing footprint across the state, which is now centred in the districts of Ariyalur and Trichy.

Sunil Aggarwal, DCBL's regional director for the south, told the media that the company inked a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Tamil Nadu government to spend Rs 2,600 crore.

He said that it will be completed in phases and that they are starting with the first project right now and will finish all three in three years.

Aggarwal said that DCBL is experiencing significant and consistent demand from rural regions.

He informed that from a GDP standpoint, they see strong growth in Tamil Nadu, and there is also parallel growth in Kerala, which is supplied by their current factories.

To gain momentum in rural and semi-urban regions, the cement company has also unveiled the Every Home Happy Offer.

DCBL now has a 17% to 20% institutional market share, with consumer sales ranging from 11 to 13%.
