Aveng speeds up its cement spending

Tuesday 17th April, 2007
Business Day reported that Aveng would spend between R1-2 billion to increase capacity in its cement operations in an attempt to meet soaring infrastructural demand. The company had to import 800 000 tons of cement during 2006, and would have to continue importing cement during 2007, as the group's capacity only stood at 500 000 tons because it did not foresee the surge in demand.
