24 July 2019

Al Ain Cement Factory (Arkan Cement Group) and National Cement Factory, owned by Lttihad International Investments, will collaborate on as 'partners of choice' under a new agreement signed by both. The agreement will see opportunities for better clinker supply, and reduced production and logistical costs.

Abdulaziz Asad, Arkan Cement's chief operating officer, said the "new agreement is a cooperation of the two largest cement and steel slag producers in Abu Dhabi."

"With this collaboration agreement in place, National Cement Factory will have less risk in securing its long-term clinker needs," said Mohamad Yassin, National Cement Factory's general manager.

Together, the two companies have a combined clinker capacity of 3.1Mta and a cement capacity of 6.6Mta.
