Flour Mills of Nigeria Plc said that plans are underway to boost its local production of cement to over 2Mta within the next two months, through its subsidiary — United Cement Company of Nigeria, Unicem, Limited.

Speaking in Lagos, weekend, Managing Director, Flour Mills, Mr. Emmanuel Ukpabi, said to achieve this, the company has installed a new crusher that is suitable to local climatic condition, adding that the new crusher which will be commissioned before the end of the third quarter, will help boost the company’s capacity utilisation.

He said, “Due to some technical and operational constraints Unicem managed to utilise only 60 per cent of its installed capacity of 2.5Mta at its greenfield cement plant situated at Mfamosing, near Calabar, Cross River State.
