Dangote Cement in Sierra Leone
Dangote Cement is building a 0.7mt capacity import terminal in Freetown. The Ebola outbreak affected our own plans in Sierra Leone as essential equipment has been delayed until carriers are satisfied it is safe to send ships to the country.
As at the end of 2015, although the country had officially been declared free of the virus, we judged that Sierra Leone was not sufficiently recovered from the Ebola crisis to open the plant, and now anticipate opening our importation and bagging plant in 2016.
Sierra Leone is a small importer of cement at present, although the country has been experiencing good growth due to its developing mining industry and is investing in infrastructure to support resource extraction. With a population of 6.1million, per-capita consumption is low at 56kg, suggesting there is room for growth now that the economy has begun to recover from the Ebola crisis.
At Dangote Cement, we are committed to becoming a global force in cement. Talented people are what make the company successful and we need to employ the very best in order to achieve our goal. We hope this might be you! If you are among the brightest and the best and relish the challenge of helping us achieve our goals, please check for vacancies in our recruitment portal.
