Lafarge Surma Cement signs clinker supply deal with Metrocem

Lafarge Surma Cement Ltd, the only fully integrated cement manufacturer in Bangladesh, has reportedly signed a supply deal with Metrocem Cement wherein Lafarge Surma Cement will supply Metrocem with clinker to produce a Portland Composite Cement brand for Lafarge Surma.

The Metrocem Group has been operating a grinding plant since 2003. Like most other cement manufacturers in Bangladesh, it imports clinker from abroad. Bangladesh doesn’t have sufficient quality limestone deposits to support a home-grown industry, so Lafarge brings limestone in from its quarry in Meghalaya in India via a 17 km conveyor belt to its plant in Chhatak.

Lafarge Surma Cement Ltd is a joint venture between Lafarge and Cementos Mollins.
