Angolan company plans to increase its production of black granite

20 August 2012

Angolan company Emanha, which processes black granite in the province of Huila, is due to start operating with new equipment this year in order to increase production from 70,000 cubic metres to 80,000 cubic metres, said the company’s managing partner Henrique Carriço.

Speaking to Angolan state newspaper Jornal de Angola, Carriço said that in the first half of the year the company had already posted 60 percent of the turnover expected for 2012, and was projected to end the year with a 20-25 percent increase in turnover.

Carriço said that the increase in production was due to requests resulting from an increasing number of social building projects underway, such as schools, hospitals, and health centres planned by the government in a number of provinces.

During the International Business Fair (Expo Huíla 2012), Emanha, which had thus far focused its business on processing black granite, presented a new limestone product, which is mainly intended for paving and buildings. (macauhub)
