Tororo Cement has unveiled a $25m four-year expansion plan involving investments in new facilities, the company said last week.
Brij Gagrani, the general manager, told the parliamentary committees on natural resources and national economy that phase one of the project had started.
“We hope to expand the capacity of the raw mill, rehabilitate the kiln, optimise cement and clinker production with addition of new packer,” Gagrani said.
Gagrani said the second phase involves putting up a new cement mill that was expected to double the company’s production capacity.
He said the planned investment was aimed at meeting the increasing regional demand.
