Emami Cement has commissioned a cement grinding unit in district of Burdwan in West Bengal, a state in the east of India, local media has reported. Emami Cement is a part of the diversified Emami Group.

The 2 million tpy grinding plant cost INR5 billion and commissioned in 13 months, the company said. The plant forms part of a project by Emami to expand its cement operations, including a 5.5 million tpy integrated cement plant in Chhattisgarh and another 1.8 million tpy grinding unit in Odisha.

The Chhattisgarh plant began operations in July last year. The company also operates a limestone quarry at Guntur in Andhra Pradesh.

Last year, the company said that it aimed to become a major player in the – already crowded – Indian cement industry.

“We are bullish on the cement business, which will help boost both our topline and bottomline,” Aditya Agarwal, a Director of the Emami Group, told reporters at a press in October. “We aim to be among the top three players in the cement industry.”

The Panagarh unit will produce ordinary portland cement, portland pozzolana cement, and portland slag cement.
