13 December 2016

Medcem Cameroon, owned by the Turkey-based Eren Holdings, will officially open its Douala plant on Friday, 16 December.

With a production capacity of 0.6Mta, the cement plant represents an investment of XAF13bn (US$21m). The first cement was produced in October 2015.

Medcem Cameroon is the third cement company to have launched on the domestic market in three years and the fourth cement producer in the country, joining LafargeHolcim subsidiary Cimencam, Dangote Cement and CIMAF.

As a result of heightened competition, cement prices have fallen recently and currently stand between XAF4300-4500/50kg bag.
