Dangote Cement is a subsidiary of Dangote Industries, which was founded by Aliko Dangote in 1981 as a trading business with an initial focus on importation of bagged cement and other commodities such as rice, sugar, flour and salt.
Over time, the Group began to import bulk cement into the Apapa and Port Harcourt terminals, which it then bagged for distribution. Through the 1990s, the Group made a strategic decision to transition from a trading based business into a fully-fledged integrated manufacturing operation. This is where our ambitious plan to become Africa’s leading cement producer began.
Dangote Industries acquires Benue Cement Company from the Federal Government as part of its privatisation exercise. BCC operated a 0.9Mta plant in Gboko, which was subsequently upgraded by the Group to 2.8Mta.

Tanzania was commissioned.
Commissioned our export terminals in Apapa and Port Harcourt and commenced clinker exports via shipping from Nigeria to West and Central Africa.
Our 3.0Mta plant in Mtwara – about 400km from Dar es Salaam – was commissioned in December 2015 and is the largest cement factory in Tanzania. With about 500 million tonnes of limestone reserves, enough for 149 years, the plant is capable of producing large amounts of high-quality 32.5 and 42.5 grade cements to meet local market needs at competitive prices, as well as surrounding export markets by sea.
With an estimated population of about 42 million, Tanzania’s per-capita cement consumption of around 50kg per annum is well below the global average and low even for Africa. Tanzania’s economy is expected to grow at an estimated 7.0% over the next five years, supported by the manufacturing, mining and tourism sectors. The improving performance of the economy has fueled strong growth in cement demand and the prospects remain favourable, given the linear relationship between economic growth and cement consumption.
Our premium quality cement is produced in three grades namely:
32.5R CEM II
Lower clinker content augmented by pumice additive and gypsum
Suitable for plastering, low-rise buildings, masonry etc.
42.5R (3X) CEM II-AL
Higher clinker content
Suitable for most building uses including high-rise, some infrastructure work
52.5 CEM I
Higher clinker content
Suitable for major infrastructure construction such as bridges, dams etc.
Dangote Cement has set new standards by pioneering the 42.5R grade ‘Dangote 3X Cement’, which is designed to give more value to the end users. 3X is decoded to mean “Xtra strong, Xtra life and Xtra yield”. The new offering comes in a 50 Kg bag and is the first of its kind in Nigeria. Dangote 3X Cement is primarily aimed at preventing construction collapses due to usage of lower-grade cement apart from strengthening the quality of the brand.
The extra strength and rapid drying properties of the product makes it the first choice for builders and contractors. A bag of the new Dangote 3X Cement – 42.5R variety is rated as equivalent to one and half bag of the regular cement bag.
