International Manufacturing Company Chzhungtsai Mohir Cement LLC (“IMCCMC”) has a total annual production capacity of 1.2 million metric tonnes of cement and is one of the largest cement plant in Khatlon Region and in Tajikistan.

Our plant employs state-of-the-art technologies in the cement production process which include the new suspension preheater (NSP) dry process, which requires less energy to produce cement, is more fuel-efficient and more environmentally friendly than non-NSP technologies.

The major characteristic of NSP technology is the pre-heating of raw materials which ensures that they are substantially decomposed prior to their mixing and feeding into the rotary kiln. This pre-heating process greatly enhances the efficiency of calcination and formation of clinker in the rotary kiln and reduces the energy consumption in the production of clinker.

Our plant was designed to provide for a comprehensive corporate governance framework to ensure efficient environmental protection in its processes which includes comprehensive pollution mitigation measures.

Our sales consist of domestic sales and export sales. Currently, our export sales are only to Afghanistan and Uzbekistan. We sell our products to constructions firms, retail customers and distributors who then resell our cement to other end users

Kazakhstan

On 7 July 2015, the Company announced International Cement Kazakhstan Pte. Ltd., an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, had entered into a joint-venture agreement with Mr Nurzhan Shakirov for the construction of a cement plant in Almaty, Kazakhstan and thereafter, for the production and sales of cement. Almaty is the biggest city in Kazakhstan and also the Central Asia Region and the Almaty Cement Plant will cover the cement market demand of Almaty city, Almaty Region and Hurgos port near the border to China.

Taking into account Kazakhstan’s positive governmental support for the domestic construction materials sector and the anticipated increase in infrastructure investments flowing from the push for development, the Company identified Kazakhstan as an important strategic location for the development of our cement business.

In FY2019, the Group will continue to focus on completing the construction of our new cement plant in Almaty, Kazakhstan. We are confident to be able to begin commercial operations of the plant within FY2019.
