Uganda’s Lafarge Unit More Than Doubles Cement Output Capacity

Jan. 12 (Bloomberg) -- Lafarge SA’s Ugandan unit more than doubled its output after it completed expansion at its Hima cement plant in the country’s western region, David Njoroge, the unit’s general manager, said today by phone from the capital, Kampala.

Production capacity increased to 850,000 metric tons from 350,000 tons after it built a second plant at Hima near the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo, Njoroge said.

The company gained the new capacity six months ago after it completed a $120 million investment over a two-year period, he said.
