Ambuja Cements commissioned a 1.5Mt capacity grinding unit at Nalagarh on Saturday, making it the company’s 12th such plant in the country and the third in the state of Himachal Pradesh.

Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal who inaugurated the plant said during the occasion that the environment and employment were two top priorities for the government.

Construction of the plant started in January 2009 and has been completed just before the excise exemptions allowed for the state expire three days later.

This unit, situated at the foot of the Himalayas and close to Punjab, would use clinker produced at the company’s Rauri unit that is 95km from the plant.
