After disappearing from the industry for 3 years, East African Portland Cement Company (EAPCC), the Kenya’s leading cement manufacturer, made a surprise comeback and participated in the 2016 Nairobi International Trade Fair. The comeback is part of the company’s strategy to boost its treasures and craft the driving sales of its products value for its stakeholders.
Speaking during the event, EAPCC’s Managing Director, Mr. Simon Peter Ole Nkeri said “We are committed and focused to turn around the fortunes of the company so as to reclaim our market leadership slot.” Mr. Ole Nkeri noted that the ASK show is a critical avenue to showcase the Company’s quality products and prowess in market leadership and forge new partnerships as the company strives to satisfy and exceed the expectations of its customers and other stakeholders.
Commenting at the Company’s display stand at the show ground, the Principal Secretary, State Department of Industry and Enterprise Development, Mr. Julius Korir had this to say, “This an excellent display of EAPCC’s capabilities and we are glad that the company is back on the trade fair.” Mr. Korir noted that the company is on the right track and urged the management team to grow revenue and enhance competitiveness in the market. The Principal Secretary also requested Government Infrastructural Projects to support the company as this was the only cement company where the Government has a stake in its shareholding.
During the show, the company showcased an array of raw materials used to make its high quality cement, Blue Triangle Cement, while at the same time offering advisory on uses of cement for sufficient results in the construction industry.
