ZAMBEZI Portland Cement (ZPC) production has hit 1.2 million tonnes per year following the expansion of the plant at the cost of 23 million Euros.
The 1.2 million tonnes translate to 3,500 tonnes of cement production per day which has increased from 1,700 tonnes.
The increase in the production of cement has seen an additional 100 locals being employed permanently.
ZPC chief executive officer Gomeli Litana said the increase in the production of cement at the company would help meet the growing demand for the commodity on both the local and regional markets.
