The ABG Group of India is set to start production from its new cement ventures this quarter.

Under ABG Cement Ltd, the company is constructing a 3Mta clinker unit in the village of Thumdi in Kutch and a 5.8Mta grinding works in the village of Mora, Surat, Gujarat state. The clinker plant is expected to go on-stream in February while the grinding unit may commence operations in the following month.

These two projects mark the ABG Group’s first foray into the cement sector. The company was also planning to  set up a cement plant in the state of Madhya Pradesh but the project has been slow to progress.
