We are among the leading cement manufacturing companies in Eastern India. We established an installed manufacturing capacity of 5.60 million metric tonne per annum (“MMTPA”) in our first two years of commercial operations, making us one of the fastest growing cement companies to achieve such feat amongst cement manufacturers operating in Eastern India. For the three months ended June 30, 2018, we had a market share of 5% in terms of cement sales volume, while our installed cement manufacturing capacity represented 6% of the total installed capacity in Eastern India (including North East) in Fiscal 2018. We currently operate three manufacturing plants and are in the process of setting up another plant, which subject to receipt of necessary approvals is expected to result in an aggregate installed capacity of 9.30 MMTPA of cement and 3.20 MMTPA of clinker by April 2019. We have an integrated cement manufacturing plant situated at Risda in Chhattisgarh, which has an installed capacity of 3.20 MMTPA of clinker and 2.50 MMTPA of cement (the “Risda Manufacturing Plant”). We commenced commercial production at this plant in December 2016. Our other operational plant is a cement grinding plant at Panagarh in West Bengal, which has an installed capacity of 2.50 MMTPA of cement (with current approvals for production up to 2.00 MMTPA) (the “Panagarh Manufacturing Plant”) and we commenced commercial production at this plant in December 2017. In September 2018, we acquired a cement grinding unit with an installed capacity of 0.60 MMTPA in Bhabua, Bihar (the “Bhabua Manufacturing Plant”) and we are currently in the process of increasing its installed capacity to 1.80 MMTPA. We commenced commercial production at this plant in September 2018 and plan to increase its capacity to 1.80 MMTPA by March 2019.
We are currently in the process of setting up a cement grinding plant at Kalinganagar, Odisha, which will have an installed capacity of 2.50 MMTPA and subject to the receipt of necessary approvals, we expect this plant to commence commercial operations by April 2019 (the “Kalinganagar Manufacturing Plant”). Our manufacturing plants are strategically located in close proximity to the raw materials that we require for our operations and are well connected to our key markets by rail and road. We have a limestone mining lease adjacent to our integrated Risda Manufacturing Plant (the “Risda Mining Unit”), where we operate a fully mechanized open cast mine and are able to extract sufficient quantities of limestone for our current clinker production requirements. At our Risda Manufacturing Plant, we have a 30 MW captive coal based power plant and a 9 MW waste heat recovery system (with provisions to scale up the generation of power up to 12 MW, subject to the receipt of necessary approvals), which cater to our energy requirements. With a view to expand our geographic presence in India, we secured limestone reserves in Guntur, Andhra Pradesh (the “Guntur Mining Unit”) by obtaining a mining lease. Further, we participated in non-coal auction and won two limestone blocks in Nagaur, Rajasthan and are awaiting execution of the mining leases.
We shall continue to contribute to the communities in which we thrive and address all social issues responsibly. We strive towards giving back to the society as a responsible institution and aid in growing the resources around us for building a vibrant nation.
Environmental Safety makes the framework of all our activity. We strongly believe that the safety of an individual will lead to a safer society for our forthcoming generations and we earnestly vouch for that. All our processes, products and services aim at safeguarding our environment.
