Javedan Cement is likely to resume 100 percent production in two months as the fuel supply will restart and the demand from the market will grow, a senior official at ministry of Industries and Production told local press.
“The company has been working on the project of reviving the production levels,” said the source. There have been some hurdles in utilising 100 per cent capacity such as low supply of oil and fear of disturbed gas supply after attacks in Sui last month. However, the ministry has now given positive signal to the company management to resume production at 100 per cent capacity.
Jamal Ahmed, manager sales of Javedan Cement, said the higher demand of cement has made the company to move towards high capacity utilization. On the other hand the supply of oil has improved as well. He said the increase in production would help the company appreciate its bottom line by the end of the year. Prevailing higher demand levels would help the company increase sales and the production cost would decline on higher utilisation of the capacity.
Mr Ahmed said that at the start of February Javedan Cement was utilising only 50 per cent of its capacity with production of around 1000tpd. Now it has improved to around 75 per cent capacity utilisation.
