Dangote Cement Plc is Sub-Saharan Africa’s leading cement company, with a production capacity of 48.6 million tonnes per year across ten countries. Together, these operations make us the largest cement producer in Sub-Saharan Africa
Our vision is for West and Central Africa to be cement and clinker self-sufficient, with Nigeria the main export hub.
We make the regional and continental free trade agreements a reality
Dangote Cement is focusing on an ‘export to import’ strategy in West and Central Africa. Nigeria has a relative abundance of quality limestone especially in key southern regions near to demand centers and export facilities. Absence of limestone in much of West Africa and Central, especially coastal states, has led some of those countries to import bulk cement or its intermediate product, clinker, usually from outside of the African Continent.
Our vision is for West and Central Africa to become cement and clinker self-sufficient, with Nigeria being the main export hub. This will notably contribute to the improvement of regional trade within the ECOWAS region and beyond with the African Continental Free Trade Area. Nigeria can serve a potential market of 15 countries, 350m+ people.
Following the commissioning of our Apapa and Onne export terminals in 2020, we commenced shipment of clinker from Nigeria to West and Central Africa.
At Dangote, our approach to sustainability goes beyond compliance with regulatory expectations. We are driven by a desire to contribute to, and positively impact the development of our host communities and society at large
