“PURECHEM CEMENT” is now a well known brand of cement in the Nigerian market and it meets both national and international standards of quality for Limestone Portland cement. Standards Organization of Nigeria (SON) has certified PIL’s cement as NIS 444: 2003-CEM II/A-L 32.5N.
PIL is the first private company in Nigeria to invest into a mini-cement plant in 2001. It is also interesting to note that there were no investment into cement production prior to 2001 for the last 25 years until PIL made its bold commitment to contribute to Nigeria’s industrial & solid minerals development.
This cement plant is based on VSK technology and has a manufacturing capacity of 300 tons per day of quality ordinary Portland cement. It is located very close to huge resources of limestone & clay. PIL owns and operates its own quarries for mining these two minerals for its captive consumption.
