Indian cement producer and World Cement Association member, Dalmia Cement, recorded strong growth in cement sales in the financial year ending 31 March 2017, following the launch of a new super-premier cement, which accounted to 10% of retail sales.

Investment in digitalisation, optimising logistics, and improving customer and reseller satisfaction also contributed to the company’s strong performance.
