Saudi cement producer Eastern Province Cement Company (EPC) will add a new production line with a capacity of 600tpd, the company said in a statement to the Saudi borse last Sunday.

EPC signed on May 30 a US$17m (EUR 12m) agreement with an unnamed company for the engineering designs and supply of equipment and machinery for the production line.

The cement producer said it had received a loan from the Saudi Industrial Development Fund (SIDF) to finance the expansion project but did not reveal exact figures.
