Prime Cement's new plant begins construction
29 August 2018

Construction of Prime Cement’s new plant in Musanze, Rwanda, began on Thursday. The cement manufacturer, part of Milbridge group, plans to complete the works within the next 12 months. The facility is expected to produce 0.6Mta of cement during the first phase and increase to 1.2Mta in the second.

"Rwanda is a stable country with a very stable political situation, the economy is growing very impressively and we were supported by local authorities such as the Governor, and even the President" said Fancesco De Martino, CEO of Milbridge Group, in an interview with The New Times.

"For what we see, the market is still not completely satisfied. But even if we meet strong competition, we really think that we have the most modern technology that will allow us to be more efficient. We are using technology that is coming from Germany, and it is green technology to mean there is no impact on the environment," said Mr Martino.
