Shun Shing Group has a strong base of manufacturing projects in Bangladesh and plans to use this knowledge to expand into cement production in other countries.
Shun Shing Group initially invested in a cement grinding mill located in Kaligonj, 38 km away from the capital city, Dhaka. The group has continually developed the Kaligonj site into an industrial park which includes multiple value-added industries including a packaging plant and an on-site power generator to optimise cement production.
A secondary grinding unit was added in 2012, in Khulna city, with a capacity of 1.7 million metric tons.
In 2018, the group has made large investments to expand and upgrade its production capacity. Construction has started on the following two projects: 1) A cement vertical roller mill (VRM) grinding unit in Chittagong city with a capacity of 1.2 million metric tons. 2) A slag vertical roller mill (VRM) griding unit in Dubai Industrial Park with a grinding capacity of 1 million metric ton per year. This grinding unit is the groups first industrial project outside of Bangladesh and is slated to mainly grind raw slag to ground granulated blast-furnace slag (GGBFS). The plant aims to start production by 4th Quarter of 2019.
