‘Cement Division team can be proud of all we have accomplished for the 2014 financial year. We have experienced a growth in our cement and clinker market share in the UAE Market. We have performed well but need to maintain our cost focus to be supplier of choice in this competitive environment. Cement Division is repositioning its strategic position among other cement manufacturer’s players in UAE.

Customer supply and quality priorities are key, to support this we have developed a continuous improvement program designed to meet the needs of our customers.

2014 milestone events were crowned by the commercial production starting of Al Ain Cement 10,000 TPD plant. His Highness Shaikh Hamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chief of the Abu Dhabi Crown Prince’s Court, has opened the Dh 1.3 billion cost plant. Being the largest in the UAE, Al Ain Cement Factory will be a value added asset to the national economy and is consistent with Senaat’s strategic plans of ruling Abu Dhabi cement market supporting by excessive volume and closer position. Earlier this year, the plant passed all specified performance guarantee tests and Akan has awarded the Supplier CBMEC the provisional acceptance certificate.
