Lafarge: Algeria cement market growing
Published: 10 June 2010

Lafarge General Manager Luc Callebat believes cement market in Algeria is growing and the current local production can not meet local demand thus the need for importation.
 
Lafarge had acquired Egyptian Orascom cement unit in Algeria and has produced in 2009 some 7.5Mt of cement in various plants in the North African country.
 
Lafarge according to General Manager is planning to increase production capacity by the year 2011 and would also need to import raw material to supply its local customers.
