Shree Cement launched Bangur Concrete ,commissioning its first Greenfield Ready Mix Concrete (RMC) plant in Hyderabad. The plant has a capacity of 90 cubic meters per hour. 

The commissioning of the state-of-the-art unit “aligns with the company’s vision to emerge as a multi-product player’‘ in the core cement business.

 “This venture into Ready Mix Concrete marks our entry into a promising new line of business. We recognise the vast potential of RMC business, which is being driven by India’s growth momentum, the concerted efforts of both Central and State Governments to advance infrastructure projects and an uptick in the housing sector. We’re committed to aggressively expand our presence in this market by building new units as well as acquiring plants,’‘ Neeraj Akhoury, Managing Director of Shree Cement said in a release.
