JK Lakshmi Cement Ltd, flagship of JK Organization, has commenced work on the 2.7Mt greenfield cement plant at Durg, Chhattisgarh with an investment of over Rs 1,100 crore. The plant is scheduled to be commissioned by 2011.
The company is enhancing clinker capacity and installing a split location grinding unit at Kalol in Gujarat to take its capacity from 3.65Mt to 4.75Mt this year. The cement capacity expansion would be completed by December 2008.
On completion of the Chhattisgarh plant, the company’s capacity would increase to about 7.5 mt, giving it a wider footprint.
