JK Cement, a significant Indian grey cement manufacturer and a major global white cement producer, has launched a new grinding unit at its Prayagraj Plant in Uttar Pradesh.

This remarkable milestone, achieved in less than ten months, demonstrates JK Cement’s dedication to meeting the expanding demand for cement and solidifying its position as an industry leader. The Prayagraj Plant is a 2 MTPA Clinker Grinding Unit project that will boost the company’s overall capacity from 22 MTPA to 24 MTPA. This strategic step helps the company easily meet the growing demand for cement in Eastern Uttar Pradesh.

The Prayagraj grinding machine is outfitted with cutting-edge German technology, resulting in increased energy efficiency and lower input and fixed costs. This strategic growth enables JK Cement to meet the changing needs of a varied client base in important areas. 

The Eastern Uttar Pradesh cement market is considerable, owing to the region’s increasing infrastructural development. The government’s significant investment in infrastructure projects, including roads, bridges, and buildings, continues to drive growth. JK Cement’s deliberate entry into this market uses its experience and resources to fulfil rising demand, cementing its position as a significant player in the industry.

Dr. Raghavpat Singhania, Managing Director, JK Cement Ltd., says, “We are thrilled to launch this new grinding unit at Prayagraj, which marks a significant milestone in our expansion strategy. As India accelerates its infrastructure development to sustain robust economic growth, we are continually scaling our capacities to cater to escalating demands from the infrastructure, housing, and construction sectors. Our commitment to quality, innovation, and contributing to socio-economic development remains unwavering. We anticipate that these endeavours will foster our growth and actively contribute to the overall development of the region and the nation.”

Madhavkrishna Singhania, Deputy Managing Director and CEO of JK Cement Ltd., added, “Our relentless pursuit of excellence has led us to this momentous occasion. Cementing our market foothold emerges as a paramount objective, seamlessly harmonising with our overarching vision of achieving sustainable and profitable expansion. This strategic addition ensures our steadfast role in nation-building and ushers in an array of employment opportunities within the state. We are committed to operational brilliance and innovative contributions, amplifying growth and progress on regional and national horizons.”

JK Cement currently runs two operating operations in Uttar Pradesh, located in Aligarh and Hamipur, with capacities of 1.5 MTPA and 2 MTPA, respectively. The project, which is being built using cutting-edge technology, is expected to create large direct and indirect job possibilities, contributing considerably to the local economy and fostering regional growth.

JK Cement’s dedication to quality, innovation, and sustainability is obvious in the design and operation of its new grinding machine. The facility is equipped with cutting-edge technology and meets the highest environmental and safety standards. This strategic development strengthens JK Cement’s position as India’s premier cement manufacturer, ready to satisfy the expanding demands of the building and infrastructure industries.
