Cimpor increases cement milling capacity in Mozambique

23 July 2013

Cement company Cimpor – Cimentos de Portugal plans to increase its cement milling capacity in Mozambique by 220,000 tons per year through its local subsidiary Cimentos de Moçambique, the Brazilian-owned group said in a statement.

In the statement published by Portuguese regulator CMVM, the group said that the increased milling capacity was a result of a rental contract on a mill located near the Matola plant.

The contract, which is now in operation, alongside increased production capacity will make it possible to manufacture new products, which is part of the group’s strategy to expand customer services.

Cimpor, an Intercement group company, now has 40 production units in eight countries over three continents.

InterCement is part of Brazilian group Camargo Corrêa, which is Cimpor’s main shareholder, with 32.9 percent. (macauhub)
