BUA Cement PLC entered the cement market in 2008 after it obtained the necessary licenses from the Nigerian government to import cement amongst several other Nigerian entrepreneurs. The business initially started with floating cement clinkers and the re-gabbing of products before BUA Cement PLC continued to purchase controlling interest.
BUA Cement PLC runs a significant business and has a combined plant capacity of over 11 metric tons annually. BUA Cement PLC takes advantage of its unique market leadership position in regional markets located in the South-East, South-South, and North-West Nigeria, attributable to its strategic location and proximity to major markets in these areas, placing it a step ahead of competitors.
BUA Cement PLC is one of the largest export markets in West Africa, which gives it additional leverage and ensures that it can maintain its extensive product portfolio. Recently, in 2018, BUA Cement PLC facilitated a merger of the Kalambaina Cement plant with the publically-listed CCNN.
This further increased BUA Cement PLC’s advantage as the Kalambaina plant has advanced investments in energy infrastructure. This includes a powerplant that supplies electricity and a coal mine that fuels the plant. BUA Cement PLC added an additional production line to existing plans, with a combined production capacity of 6 million tonnes between the combined lines.
BUA Cement PLC's equity stocks are for sale online on the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NGX) under the stock symbol BUACEMENT.
