General Manager and Head of the Cameroonian factory, Mr. Abdulahi Baba, has said that the three manufacturers of cement in the country were about surpassing local consumption demand and that the management of Dangote was already looking towards export prospects to neighbouring countries.
He stated that Cameroon, with a consumption growth of eight percent and local production of 2.9 million metric tonnes per annum, the Dangote management was looking at exporting its products to Chad, Central African Republic, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea and Togo among other countries in Africa.
The firm stated disclosed this in a statement at the weekend that the gesture of the Cameroonian government and the ban on importation was a vote of confidence in the ability of cement manufacturers in the country, especially Dangote Cement, to meet and surpass local consumption demand.
According to him, “The Company has strategised to achieve 30 percent market share. There are also plans of achieving 30 per cent export of total production.”
General Manager and Head of the Cameroonian factory added that demand was growing daily because of the infrastructure developmental efforts put in place by the government.
“We will take the advantage of the ban on cement importation here in Cameroon. We have a structured distributorship system in place and our route to market is very clear and defined. We are building a jetty so that we are not held down, but have smooth distribution during congestion at the ports”
The Company has further said that it will increase local production in Cameroon following the ban on importation of the product by the country’s government.
The firm unveiled 42.5 cement grade in the Cameroonian market after the inauguration of the company’s 1.5 million-metric-tonne capacity per annum plant in Douala.
