Ghana will construct a technologically advanced cement grinding factory in the coming months. President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will lay the foundation of the cement plant for CBI Ghana Limited at the Tema Free Zones Enclave.
Additionally, CBI Managing Director, Frédéric Albrecht will address the media as part of activities for the laying of foundation stone. The CBI Ghana plant will produce premium cement under the brand name, “Supacem” once completed.
“We intend to produce and supply high-quality Supacem cement to Ghanaian builders and stabilize cement supply for all required grades in Ghana,” said Managing Director, Frédéric Albrecht.
About the factory
The Supacem factory will be a state-of-the-art project. According to the Commercial Director, Kobby Adams, priority will include safety, low-emissions, and environmental friendliness.
Moreover, Supacem will launch with their “Fast Dry” 32.5R. This brand has met great success in pilot-testing with masons and block-makers in Accra and Kumasi. The cement boasts of the fastest one-day and two-day strengths of any 32.5R-grade cement in Ghana. Apart from that, it meets the Ghana Standards Board GS 1118 and EN 197 quality standards.
In addition, supacem is a high-quality Ghanaian cement, supported by the highest global standards of LafargeHolcim, the leading cement manufacturer in the world.

In summary, Group operations produce cement, aggregates and ready-mix concrete which are used in building projects ranging from affordable housing and small, local projects to the biggest, most technically and architecturally challenging infrastructure projects.
