Kolkata:Dalmia Cement (Bharat) Limited, a leader in the specialty cements space and the country’s largest producer of slag cement extended their growing brand portfolio by launching the fine blend composite cement, Dalmia FBC Cement, Saturday, marking a new chapter in the composite cement manufacturing sphere in Eastern India.

Dalmia FBC is a premium quality cement and the perfect blend of slag and silica and comes with all the benefits of PSC (Portland Slag Cement) and PPC (Portland Pozzolona Cement). Dalmia FBC, is a Fine Blend Composite Cement that gives better coverage in every bag which leads to saving in overall construction cost. Now with lesser quantity of cement one can build more. The new brand was launched by Group senior executive director B.K. Singh and executive director sales and marketing(east) Indrajit Chatterji. 

B.K. Singh said, “ Today with the launch of Dalmia FBC Cement we are introducing the latest innovation in cement industry. Dalmia Bharat Group now controls an expandable capacity of 26MTPA in the country.  We are committed to further optimize cost on sustained basis and adopting environmental friendly processes.”

B.K. Singh further added, “We are expecting a growth in the affordable and rural housing segments and infrastructure—primarily road and irrigation projects and is likely to maintain a demand growth momentum of around 5% in FY19. This is backed by low-cost housing in the eastern markets, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and the infrastructure demand from the eastern, southern and western markets. But there needs to be a check on coal, pet coke and freight charges due to increase in diesel prices as it is directly affecting the profitability margins and debt metrics of cement companies.”
