Annual Capacity: 3.5 million pieces per year (capacity varies depending on the type of block produced).
Shun Shing Buildings Materials Ltd.
Shun Shing Building Materials Ltd. (SSBML) was established in 2007 as a subsidiary of Shun Shing Group at the time its capacity was 50,000 pieces per year. SSBML produces concrete or “grey,” blocks using a semi-automatic process. These blocks are a great alternative to using traditional mud bricks, mud bricks pollute the air by using high-sulphur coal during its manufacturing process whereas no harmful emissions is produced during the manufacturing of concrete blocks.
In early 2015, SSBML installed a new automated concrete block production line, this ramped up the plant’s capacity to 3.5 million pieces per year in order to meet growing demand for concrete blocks in Bangladesh. Providing a sensible alternative to many other building materials, these blocks can be used in industrial, commercial, institutional and residential applications.
The advantages of using concrete blocks:
Long-lasting, because they are not affected by harsh climates or extreme changes in weather conditions
Non-porous structure allows for superior fire resistance
No harmful residues or emissions produced during manufacturing
Uniformity of shape makes lying and bonding easy, and reduces waste
Environmentally Friendly, reducing at least 30% of environmental waste and 50% of greenhouse gas emissions.
Improved thermal efficiency reduces heating and cooling load in buildings.
