Pakistan plant in production next year
Published: 30 November 2005

Pakistan Cement Company (PCC) will go into regular production from April next year after a lapse of long ten and a half years of this plant’s set up. PCC chief financial officer, Shafquat Mahmood told Geo that this plant would be producing 6000t of cement per day and that would make it the largest plant of the country. Pakistan Cement was earlier known as Chakwal Cement and had much of the required equipment delivered to the site before construction was halted by the owners. Egyptian Group, Orascom has now bought into this plant last year at a cost of nearly Rs8 billion and later decided to invest additional Rs3 billion for making it operative.
