The Braj Binani Group established another subsidiary, Binani Cement Factory LLC, Dubai in 1996, with an aim of creating a niche for itself in the international markets. This plant is located in the Jebel Ali Industrial Area and has a capacity of 1.2 MTPA of OPC (Ordinary Portland Concrete cement) and GGBFS (Ground Granulated Blast Furnace). In order to meet increasing demands of cement, the company added a slag drying facility in 2009 and further increased the total production capacity to 2 MTPA by adding a third clinker grinding line. Close proximity of the cement plant to major ports in Dubai is an added advantage for easy export of the finished product to various locations.
To capitalize on the demand of cement in East African and other neighboring countries, yet another subsidiary, Binani Cement Factory (SFZ) Ltd. is established in Sudan for marketing cement produced in Dubai. The company has set up marketing offices through its subsidiaries in Sudan, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Kuwait and other East African countries.
