JK White Cement Works (Fujairah) FZC is a subsidiary of JK Cement Ltd ,one of the leading producers of Grey Cement in India and second largest producer of White Cement in India.
JKCL under the banner of its subsidiary JK Cement Works (Fujairah) FZC has set up a green field white cement manufacturing plant in Fujairah, United Arab Emirates.
The plant has been set up in association with Fujairah Investment Establishment (A Govt. of Fujairah Undertaking).
The company has commenced its commercial production from September, 2014 and is now supplying white cement and other cement based value added products to more than 40 countries across the globe.
The dual process cement plant of JK Cement Works (Fujairah) FZC has a capacity either to produce 0.6 MnTPA of White Cement or 1.0 MnTPA of Grey Cement. This capacity expansion has made JK Cement among the top 3 White Cement manufacturing groups in the world. The plant is specially designed to switch from one product to another (White to Grey Cement & vice-versa) as per market demand. This “Composite Dual Process Cement Plant” is one of the first of its kind in the world.
Through JK Cement Works (Fujairah) FZC, the Company plans to cater to the White Cement demand in the region as well as to the neighboring countriesnamely UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, Yemen, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, South Korea, thailand and Australia and expanding its presence to the rest of the world.
The humungous scale of construction activity has made concrete the second most consumed substance in the world, water being the first. As the critical ingredient in the manufacturing of concrete, cement is indispensable for growth in virtually all the sectors, be it housing or industry, institutions or businesses, infrastructure or defence.
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a rapidly diversifying, highly developed economy which has proved to be remarkably resilient, despite the impact of the global economic downturn. Increasing government expenditure on infrastructure development and housing projects in the region has led to a major boom in the construction and real estate sectors. The stage was thus perfectly set for JK Cement Ltd. to roll out our capacity expansion plans, beyond national borders into the MENA & SA (Middle East and North Africa & South Asia).
For over four decades, JK Cement has pioneered various initiatives and technological breakthroughs in the Indian Industry, and is one of the foremost participants in India’s industrial growth. The Company’s maiden overseas plant at Fujairah, UAE, is the fruition of a long nurtured dream. Based on a strategic understanding of the available opportunities, we are confident about leveraging them to the maximum.
