Danish engineering company, FLSmidth, has opened a new office Kathmandu, Nepal, according to a company press release. The office was inaugurated on 31 January 2017.

FLSmidth has increased its activities in Nepal over recent years, following its first order in the country in 2014: a 1200 tph greenfield cement production line from Sarbottam Cement. Since then, the company has received a number of orders for clinker production lines, grinding stations, upgrades and retrofits.

“I am glad that FLSmidth has opened a new office in Nepal,” said Bishnu Neupane, Managing Director of Sarbottam Cement, who was involved in the inauguration. “Now the high-quality services and modern technologies are much closer.”

Neupane also noted that the new office fulfilled a commitment made by FLSmidth’s CEO, Thomas Schulz, when her last visited the country.

The office will be headed by Nageswar Rao, a 30-year veteran of the cement industry. Before joining FLSmidth, Rao worked with Bhagwati Designs – which was acquired by the Danish company – and Larsen & Toubro.
