Cement maker PPC Zimbabwe is set to spend about $75 million this year on its Harare mill as the company sets its sights on the export market, an official has said.
PPC Zimbabwe managing director Njombo Lekula said the construction of the Harare cement mill was well on course. “We are spending about $75 million on our Harare mill this year and we are expecting to commission it in the first quarter of 2016,” he said.
The managing director said they were also investing over $6 million dollars on their Bulawayo and Colleen Bawn plants aimed at improving production. “We will be spending about $6,4 million for our two factories in Matabeleland, that is, Bulawayo and Colleen Bawn factory,” he said.
PPC is one of three major cement manufacturers in Zimbabwe along with Lafarge and Sino-Zimbabwe.
