Through our recent investment, Dangote Cement has eliminated Nigeria’s dependence on imported cement and has transformed the nation into a net exporter of cement, serving neighboring countries.
Dangote Cement is Africa’s leading cement producer with operations in 10 African countries, and revenues in excess of US$2.5 billion. We are a fully integrated quarry-to-customer producer with production capacity of up to 48.6 million tonnes per annum (Mta) across Africa as at 2020. We have operational facilities in Cameroon, Congo, Ethiopia, Ghana, Senegal, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tanzania and Zambia.
Our business is organised into two strategic regions: Nigeria and Pan-Africa. Each region pursues its business plan in line with the overall corporate strategy set out by the Group’s Board and Executive Management, but mindful of the prevailing conditions in each market.
Nigeria is Sub-Saharan Africa’s largest market for cement, consuming more than 22Mt in 2020. From our three factories, all located south of the country’s two main rivers, we can reach every local market in Nigeria with our extensive and market-leading fleet of distribution trucks. In 2020, we sold 16Mt of cement to the domestic market.
