Savannah Cement plans to invest in a clinker manufacturing unit in Athi River which will cost Ksh8.5 billion (US$ 97million). The clinker will help to reduce dependence on imported clinker for production of cement in Kenya.
While speaking to a local paper, Savannah Cement Managing Director, Ronald Ndegwa said that the firm has set advanced standards in the manufacturing of its products and this is evident by the fact that they are certified (Kenya Bureau of Standards)Kebs holders.
The company entered the cement industry in August 2012 after Mombasa Cement and National Cement and this has led to stiff competition among cement producers in the country.
