From a two-plant company having a capacity of just 1.3 million tonnes in 1989, India Cements has rapidly grown in the last two decades to a total capacity of 15.5 million tonnes per annum. India Cements has now 8 integrated cement plants in Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Rajasthan and two grinding units, one each in Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra. Their cement products are marketed under the name Coromandel cement.
While retaining cement over the years as its mainstay, India Cements has ventured into related fields like shipping, captive power and coal mining that have purposeful synergy to the core business. This also stemmed from the company’s strategy of emerging as an integrated pan India player to combat uncertainties in securing energy and other inputs in the supply chain at competitive costs.
