Vicat Sagar joint venture plant begins production, India
Published: 20 December 2012


The first line at the greenfield Vicat Sagar plant, a joint venture between France-based Vicat and Sagar Cements, has started production.

Located in the north of Karnataka, the plant has a nominal cement capacity of 2.8Mta and has a captive power plant and immediate access to rail transport.

To benefit from substantial operational synergies between the companies controlled by Vicat in India, the plant’s production will be marketed under the “Bharathi” brand, backed up by its strong reputation and a solid distribution network covering the whole of western and southern India.

In the future, the Vicat Sagar plant’s production capacity will be increased to follow the expected strong growth of the Indian market.
