MAKING NEPAL SELF-RELIANT IN CEMENT

We entered into the Cement Manufacturing business at a time when total dependence in Nepal was on imported Cement. Today, we have an investment in two of the largest cement companies of Nepal; Shivam Cement - the first public listed cement company of Nepal with a production capacity of 3k tonnes per day and Hongshi Cement - the largest FDI company of Nepal of $300m and the largest production capacity of 6K tonnes per day.

Business Highlights

Shivam Cement
    • The largest cement manufacturing company in Nepal, Shivam Cement, was founded in 2003. It began commercial production in 2011 from self-owned limestone quarries. 
    • The private limited company went public with the largest IPO in Nepal under the manufacturing division during 2018.
    • Shivam Cement (P) Ltd. is, by far, the largest investment done by the private sector in Nepal. This project is a greenfield that has its own captive mines. It produces 1200 TPD cement, including the making of clinker & grinding.
