Published: 30 December 2004

Malaysia’s Lafarge Malayan Cement bhd is now involved in a move that is aimed at reducing the group’s overall logistics costs to ship cement from its Langkawi plant to the mainland as well as reduce the export of clinker from its Kanthan plant. As a result, the company plans to increase the capacity of its Rawang unit by 800,000tpa subsequent to the transfer of an idle grinding mill in Langkawi to the Rawang plant. In so doing, the additional cement mill is scheduled to be commissioned and begin production by July 2005.
