16 January 2014

Sephaku Cement, South Africa’s customer-focused cement producer is pleased to announce that it has dispatched its first bags of cement to customers across Gauteng, Mpumalanga and Limpopo. From its current offering of 50kg bags and bulk orders of Sephaku 32 and Sephaku 42 to its technical solution support and customer service, the company is in a position to deliver quality from start to finish.

Pieter Fourie, Chief Executive of Sephaku Cement said, “Building cement operations from the ground up has given us the opportunity to ensure that we use the most high-tech cement manufacturing equipment. We can dictate product quality rather than be dictated to by existing operational constraints that other producers face.”

“We want to ensure that every customer gets the best from our cement. We will assist technically from the start when a customer is deciding which class of cement is needed,” he added. The company’s value-driven service approach is backed by product testing and special mix design support provided by its Technical Laboratory based at its Delmas plant.

The founding team successfully navigated financing and development of their R3.2 billion company and projects through the global recession. Instilling confidence through their 200 years of combined experience in the cement industry and can do approach, they emerged with shareholding of 64% by Dangote Cement and 36% by Sephaku Holdings, together with local debt funding of R1.95 billion.
Sephaku Cement’s momentum in producing cement is well underway. “We are well prepared and ready to serve our customers in a way in which they have not been served before in this market,” concluded Fourie, whose leadership team all talk of the importance of delivering a ‘wow’ factor, from the way in which their people – right up to Fourie – are accesible, proactive and decision-focused.
