Jaypee Group is the third largest cement producer in India. The Group’s cement facilities are located in the Satna Cluster (MP), which has one of the highest cement production growth rates in the country.
The Group produces a special blend of Portland Pozzolana Cement (PPC) under the brand name ‘Jaypee Cement’. Its cement division currently operates modern, computerised process control cement plants and had an aggregate capacity of (commissioned/under commissioned) 28.80 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) in FY 12. The company is in the midst of capacity expansion of its cement business in northern, southern, central, eastern and western parts of the country and achieved 41.40 MTPA in total cement capacity (commissioned/under commissioned) in FY 13 with Captive Thermal Power plants totaling 672 megawatt (MW).
All the 260 cement dumps are networked using TDM/TDMA VSATs along with a dedicated hub to provide 24/7 connectivity between the plants and the 120 points of cement distribution, in order to ensure ‘track-the-truck’ initiative and provide seamless integration. This initiative is the first of its kind in the cement industry in India.
The group also plans to expand its cement capacities via acquisition and greenfield additions to maximise economies of scale.
