In the quest to get closer to its customers and also create jobs, DANGOTE CEMENT GHANA LIMITED has acquired a forty-one and half acre of land at Takoradi, in the Western Region to establish a grinding and bagging plant.

Confirming the news to the Media at a Press Conference in Accra, Vice-Chairman of the Company Alhaji Tajudeen A. Sijuade disclosed that the entirely new cement grinding and bagging plant in Takoradi comes in the wake of an expansion project aimed at meeting the market demand of cement in Ghana.

After completion of the Takoradi project and that of Tema in the Greater Accra Region, he said, there would be enough cement on the market and that would also eliminate unnecessary price hikes, caused by scarcity of the commodity.

“…we have commenced expansion in Tema which will give us 1.5 million tones when we finish because we are adding three belts and two rotors to our packers, making them four and two big silos with 6000 ton capacity each. By the time we finish this, there will be no shortage of cement in Ghana because we will have more than enough”.

“…as an extension of that, we have acquired land at Takoradi where we grind clinker, mix and bag,” Alhaji Sijuade revealed.

He further stated that when expansion works are done at both plants, DANGOTE CEMENT GHANA LIMITED will produce 3 million tonnes of cement but was quick to assure customers of the fact that quality would not be compromised for quantity.

He was however disappointed about the fact that cement cannot be produced from limestone here in Ghana because most of the deposits in the southern part of the country, are more of dolomite and it is not good enough for the production of cement.

Alhaji Tajudeen A. Sijuade also hinted that the total work force of DANGOTE CEMENT GHANA LIMITED will jump to around 3000 after the completion of expansion works at the Tema and Takoradi plants.
