Savannah Cement has significantly enhanced its supply focus to local and regional infrastructure development projects such as roads, dams and related large ticket initiatives geared at diversifying the firm’s revenue streams while enhancing its market share.

Savannah Cement Managing Director Ronald Ndegwa, who was speaking during a customer visit to Outer Ring Road contractor Sinohydro Corporation and paving blocks manufacturer KenBro in Nairobi, confirmed that the firm has enhanced its corporate sales capacity in response to market demands. Further, Savannah Cement, is undertaking preparatory works to facilitate the installation of its second grinding plant at its Kitengela manufacturing complex to boost production capacity.

This is expected to double the firm’s production capacity to 2.4 million tonnes annually up from the current 1.2 million. At the Kshs 8.5billion Outer Ring Road expansion project, Savannah Cement is supplying up to 2,500 tonnes of cement every month for the dual carriage road project that is designed to ease traffic congestion in the city’s Eastlands area.

“We have the very latest technology at our Kitengela plant which means that we can guarantee quality consistency. The technology also helps us run a dust-free operation with low energy footprint which keeps our cost of production per tonne very competitive,” said Mr Ndegwa.

Sinohydro Corporation’s Chief Engineer Zhou Chong said: “We have had consistent quality and efficient service delivery. This means that we can also be assured of consistent quality of our products and work because cement is a very key ingredient,” said Mr Zhou when the Savannah Cement team toured the project.

Mr Ndegwa said that the firm was also looking forward to supplying the Naivasha leg of the Standard Gauge Railway Project. In addition to these mega-projects, Savannah has also exclusively supplied cement to the construction of Garden City, the region’s largest mall, JKIA expansion and the University of Nairobi towers and the Karuma Dam in Uganda among others.
