HeidelbergCement Bangladesh Limited is one of the largest manufacturers of top-quality cement in Bangladesh, and represents two reputed brands: RubyCement and ScanCement.
In 1998, Heidelberg Materials established its presence in Bangladesh by setting up a floating terminal with onboard packing facilities in the port of Chittagong. In 1999, the Group further strengthened its position in Bangladesh and built a greenfield plant in Kanchpur, near Dhaka, under the name ScanCement International Limited. In 2000, Heidelberg Materials bought a minority position in Chittagong Cement Clinker Grinding Co. Limited (CCCGCL), followed soon thereafter by acquisition of a controlling stake. In 2003, the two companies were merged, and the name changed to HeidelbergCement Bangladesh Limited. Since 2004, the company has diversified its product range by introducing Portland Composite Cement (PCC) into the market. The company also produces Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC).
Heidelberg Materials further increased the capacity of its Kanchpur plant by setting up another grinding unit able to process 0.45 million tonnes per year, which was commissioned in 2008. The company also increased the capacity of its Chittagong plant by installing another cement mill of 0.75 million tonnes per year, which has been in operation since the end of 2011. The total production capacity now stands at 2.4 million tonnes per year. Both plants are certified according to the globally applicable ISO 14001 environmental management system standards. In 2013, Heidelberg Materials installed another cement silo with a capacity of 8,000 tonnes at its Kanchpur plant as part of its silo project, which will help to increase the productivity. In October 2019 a new grinding mill in the Kanchpur plant has been commissioned which increases the capacity by 0.4 million tonnes per year.
Our brands ScanCement and RubyCement are both Portland Composite Cement (PCC), using top-quality clinker and other cementitious materials blended to create the best characteristics for the customer. The strong brand image and market reputation of both brands allow HeidelbergCement Bangladesh to sell ScanCement and RubyCement at a premium price across all regions and segments.
