Published: 28 October 2008

The management of Lafarge WAPCO may have concluded arrangements to increase its production output, following plans to deploy, by 2010, a new 2.2Mt-line, which will increase the firm’s aggregate capacity to 4.2Mt.

Lafarge WAPCO currently has a capacity of 2Mt through its plants at Ewekoro and Sagamu in Ogun State.

The company, it was gathered, has signed a contract with CBMI Construction Company of China for the supply of equipment and subsequent erection in Ewekoro, while it has also signed an agreement with Wartzila of Finland for a new power plant.

Managing Director of the company, Mr. George Lourandos, said Lafarge WAPCO would continue to play a major role in the Nigerian cement market with its commitment to brand quality and excellence and increasing customer satisfaction, adding that the company would also continue to reap from the enormous benefits of its relationship with the Lafarge Group, the world leader in building materials.
