Dangote Cement is a subsidiary of Dangote Industries, which was founded by Aliko Dangote in 1981 as a trading business with an initial focus on importation of bagged cement and other commodities such as rice, sugar, flour, salt and fish.
Over time, the Group began to import bulk cement into the Apapa and Port Harcourt terminals, which it then bagged for distribution. Through the 1990s, the Group made a strategic decision to transition from a trading based business into a fully-fledged integrated manufacturing operation. This is where our ambitious plan to become Africa’s leading Cement producer began.we invites qualified Tanzanians to fill the following job vacancies click the link for job description and application
Dangote Cement in Tanzania
Our 3.0Mta plant in Mtwara – about 400km from Dar es Salaam – was
commissioned in December 2015 and is the largest cement factory in
Tanzania. With about 500 million tonnes of limestone reserves, enough
for 149 years, the plant is capable of producing large amounts of
high-quality 32.5 and 42.5 grade cements to meet local market needs at
competitive prices, as well as surrounding export markets by sea.
With an estimated population of about 42 million, Tanzania’s per-capita cement consumption of around 50kg per annum is well below the global average and low even for Africa. Tanzania’s economy is expected to grow at an estimated 7.0% over the next five years, supported by the manufacturing, mining and tourism sectors. The improving performance of the economy has fueled strong growth in cement demand and the prospects remain favourable, given the linear relationship between economic growth and cement consumption.
