JSW Cement has commenced manufacturing of Concreel HD cement at its Dolvi unit in Maharashtra, a move that will help the company expand its retail presence in West India.
The cement division of the Sajjan Jindal-led JSW Group is also increasing capacity at its Dolvi plant from 1 MTPA to 2.2 MTPA by 2018, and will further expand it to 4.5 MTPA by 2019.
The product that has already been a success in southern markets will be sold through more than 1000 retail outlets across Greater Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Thane and Raigad district and will be available across the state by the end of this fiscal.
“I am glad to see Concreel HD make its way into the western states of India with Maharashtra. JSW Cement will be increasing capacity in our Dolvi plant from 1 MTPA to 4.4 MTPA by 2018 and further expanding it to 4.5 MTPA by 2019 to cater to demand in this region,” Parth Jindal, MD, JSW Cement said.
