ARM Cement reports improved profit and revenue

Published by

Kenya’s ARM Cement reported pre-tax profit of KES1.2 billion in the first half and revenue of KES7.6 billion thanks to strong sales of cement and fertiliser. According to reports, the company’s cement sales rose by 10% in Kenya and by more than a third in Tanzania, a fact the company attributes to a better distribution network.

Further profit growth is expected in the second half thanks to investments to improve operations at the company’s cement plants, which should boost profit margins.

In ARM Cement’s recent Cement Industry Report, the company reported on a growing demand for housing in the East African region, where the population is young and increasingly migrating from rural to urban areas. The report predicts demand in the region will grow to 20 million t within the next few years, while cement capacity is 15.6 million t.
