Shree Cement is on course with its expansion drive to raise cement capacity to 20Mta by 2015 with two new projects currently under implementation.

The company, which already has a strong presence in northern India, is setting up an integrated unit in the central state of Chhattisgarh due for commissioning in 2015. Meanwhile, to tap growing consumption in the eastern market it is also setting up a grinding unit in Bihar.

“The Chhattisgarh unit could be commissioned by April next year, while the Bihar unit could come up by next month. We are also on the verge of completing the expansion at Rajasthan. Together, our production capacity will reach around 20Mta from 13.5Mta,” H.M. Bangur, managing director of Shree Cement, told The Telegraph.
