With 2.5 million tpy, LafargeHolcim is now the largest cement producer within the Ivory Coast, covering over a half of the need at an estimated 4 million t.

The commencement of the sixth mill was also an opportunity to present the new commercial offers of LafargeHolcim Côte d’Ivoire.

These include the installation of a new palletiser in Côte d’Ivoire. The system, which has a permanent supply of cement pallattes, will significantly improve truck-loading rates to reduce customer-waiting time.

A second automatic palletiser is also being built. It will be the first automatic palletiser in West Africa.
