Lafarge Cement’s Ugandan unit has more than doubled its output after it completed expansion at its Hima cement plant in the country’s western region, general manager, David Njoroge, told Bloomberg in a recent interview.

Production capacity increased to 850,000t from 350,000t after it built a second plant at Hima near the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo, Njoroge said.
 
The company gained the new capacity six months ago after it completed a US$120m investment over a two-year period, he said.
