ZIMBABWE COMMISSIONS US $10M TILE AND BRICK PLANT

-

- Advertisment -

The government of Zimbabwe has
officially commissioned US $10m million brick and tile manufacturing plant
at Sino Zimbabwe Cement Company (SZCC) on the outskirts of Gweru.

The commissioning of the brick
and tile manufacturing plant comes barely two weeks after the commissioning of
US $62m smelter at Unki Mines. Market watchers say the commissioning of the two
projects within a short space of time indicates that investors, both existing
and potential, have confidence in the new administration led by President
Mnangagwa.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa, who
opened the plant said that commissioning of a new brick moulding plant is
basically a welcome move in that we now have another player in the country.

“What it means is that it will
provide additional bricks and competition, which in turn will have an effect on
pricing,” said His Excellency.

The plant has capacity to produce
60 million bricks per annum and when fully complete the capacity will increase
to 100 million bricks. SZCC is operating at 90% capacity utilization and plans
to ramp up production. It has about 400 employees and produces 300 000 tonnes
of cement annually against a national demand of approximately 1,1 million
tonnes.

Additionally, SZCC will be making
bricks from the by-product of the cement manufacturing plant, a process which
will be contributing significantly in the campaign to go green and at the same
time creating employment opportunities.

SZCC Managing Director, Wang Yong commended that the company bought in world class machinery for brick moulding and as such it is a modern factory that will also produce face bricks which will be imported.https://constructionreviewonline.com/2019/05/zimbabwe-commissions-us-10m-tile-and-bricks-plant/
