Tanga Cement Plc (AfriSam Group) has set its eyes on capturing more of the residential and infrastructure construction market in Tanzania. Its new Mkombozi all-purpose 32.5N cement was launched in Dar es Salaam yesterday, reports the Citizen.

"This is all-purpose cement meant for various construction activities," said Leslie Massawe, Tanga Cement's sales manager. "It is a step by the company to approach Tanzanians with an innovative product of high quality and affordable to the people."

Tanga Cement increased its clinker capacity from 0.5Mta to 1.25Mta earlier this year when it commissioned its Kiln Line No 2 in anticipation of higher demand.The government is forecast to spend TZS4.8trn (US$2.19bn) on public construction projects in the current financial year.
