Sephaku Cement, powered by Dangote Cement is changing the genetic code of cement in South Africa. With the most high tech plants in the country turning its turbines, it has injected fast, strong and confident DNA into an ageing sector. The roots of South Africa’s first new clinker producer since 1934 date back to 2006 when its hugely successful Greenfields project commenced.
Today, as a 36% associate company of Sephaku Holdings, we are immensely proud to stand side by side with Dangote Cement, which is Africa’s fastest growing industrial company.
Sephaku Cement is committed to being the sub-Saharan driver of Dangote Cement’s bold vision to build prosperity in Africa. As a 64%-owned subsidiary of the company, customers gain access to a range of benefits, which are unlocked as a direct result of being part of a truly pan-African manufacturer and distributor of cement, including:
Sephaku’s operations include a 6,000-ton per day flagship clinker facility located near Lichtenburg in the North West Province, a cement milling plant in Delmas, Mpumalanga, and Sephaku Ash that produces close to 1.3 million tons of ash annually. Its plants run on the latest cement production technology equipment and critically, do not emit more than 30mg per normal cubic metre.
With a positive impact on cost and environmental management efficiencies, our operations are in the region of 30 to 40% more efficient through, amongst other factors, installation of new vertical roller mill technology for all milling requirements. Embedded in these impressive plants, operational and process efficiency and customer-centric service, Sephaku Cement confidently stakes its claim as one of the continent’s most proficient producers of integrated cement and clinker.
Sephaku Cement’s foundation is built on inspired, motivated and talented people who have the drive to achieve and exceed set objectives.
