Burkina Faso: Moroccan Addoha Group Launches Construction of New Cement Plant
The plant, located in Bobo-Dioulasso, the second the city of the West African country, will cost about €25 million and will be completed in 18 months.
The new plant will generate 200 direct and indirect jobs.
Production will mainly meet the local demand but CIMAF (Ciment d’Afrique) is also looking to export towards regional markets.
CIMAF already has a cement plant in capital Ouagadougou producing 500,000 tons of cement yearly.
Burkina Faso’s cement market is dominated by the Indian giant Diamond Cement which represents 60 per cent of domestic market share followed by CimFaso and also CimBurkina; a subsidiary of German group Heidelberg.
