We commenced our journey in 1985, withstanding the test of time and witnessing holistic growth across all facets. Through the years, we have emerged as a key player in the South Indian cement industry, and have contributed to the development of the regions where we operate.
Follow us through our eventful journey spanning over three decades.
Plant commissioned with a 200 TPD kiln with a four-stage preheater. Before the advent of this technology, cement plants used wet process in which heat (coal) and electricity consumption was very high.
The four-stage preheater technology, introduced in 1980s, uses less coal and electricity
Installed a KIDS® cooler, which is a clinker inlet distribution system developed by the German company, IKN.
Installation of the cooler helped the process by reducing heat (coal) consumption and the maintenance time and interval.
Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) for raw mills and coal mill
Undertook a brownfield capacity expansion by adding an additional six-stage calciner preheater, kiln and pendulum cooler, and a 2.5 MTPA cement-grinding capacity adjacent to the existing kiln
Acquired a 1.0 MTPA plant from BMM Cement (with proceeds from Vicat JV SCL stake sale)
Acquired the unit in Bayyavaram
Consolidated position in the South
Expanded in the East
Gradually ramped up the Bayyavaram capacity to 0.3 MTPA
Bayyavaram capacity ramped up to 1.5 MTPA
SCRL production ramped up to 1.25 MTPA
1.0 MTPA integrated plant in Madhya Pradesh (Satguru Cement)
1.50 MTPA capacity grinding at Jajpur, Odisha (Jajpur Cement)
