On August 06, the ceremony of launching the new Cemix white cement plant took place. Russian President Vladimir Putin took part in the ceremony.

The new production, unique for the country, is located in Bashkiria, near Magnitogorsk, and is a division of the Austrian holding Lasselsberger, a major producer of construction and raw materials.

During the tour the head of the state got acquainted with the production process, samples of raw materials and finished products. Answering the questions of the employees, Vladimir Vladimirovich gave a high assessment of the project and its significance for the construction industry.

“The commissioning of this enterprise, created by one of the world’s recognized leaders, your Austrian partner, is a good example of close investment cooperation between Russia and the Republic of Austria. I am sure that the products manufactured here will be in high demand in the domestic construction industry, which develops effectively and dynamically. You know that we have very big construction plans – in housing construction, road construction and industrial construction. Undoubtedly, this material – one of the key materials supplying the construction complex – will be in demand, moreover, it will completely cover the current needs of our country in such an important material as white cement,” stressed the head of state.
The Cemix factory is equipped with a modern “dry” cement production line and is one of the plants built under the “Smart plant” concept, the distinguishing feature of which is the complete automation of the production processes, minimizing the influence of the human factor on the stability of quality.
Design capacity of the plant – up to 240 thousand tons of white cement Cemix Prowhite per year. In the future it is planned to organize production of microcalcite and dry building mixtures on the plant site.
According to GOST 965-89 Cemix Prowhite cement corresponds to white Portland cement ÏÖÁ-1-500 D0 and will be available in several types of packing: in bulk, in 1 ton big-bags, in polyethylene bags 25 and 40 kg.
Shipment will take place not only from the plant in Magnitogorsk, but also from regional logistic centers. The company has acquired two sites for this purpose: in Lukhovitsy (Moscow Region) and in Afipsky (Krasnodar Territory).
Cemix Prowhite cement will soon be available for ordering and sale.
