Ambuja Cements

Ambuja Cements Limited, previously known as Gujarat Ambuja Cement Limited (GACL), is a major player in the cement industry. The company is primarily engaged in production of cement and clinker. The Adani Group company is the third largest cement producer in India and it caters to both domestic and international markets.

It was founded in 1983 by Narotam Sekhsaria and Suresh Neotia. A major player in the building materials industry, the company is headquartered in Mumbai. As of December 16, 2023, the market capitalisation of Ambuja Cements stood at over ₹1.03 lakh crore. Ambuja Cements share price has surged 111% in the last three years.

In 2005, Ambuja Cements entered into a partnership with Holcim Group of Switzerland, along with another leading Indian cement company, ACC Limited. In 2015, Holcim Limited and Lafarge SA merged to establish LafargeHolcim, emerging as the global frontrunner in production and supply of construction materials. By 2022, Ambuja Cements became a part of the Adani Group.

Ambuja Cements business operations

In 1986, the company started operations with a single plant with a capacity of 7 lakh tonnes per annum. Ambuja Cements has now developed a cement production capacity of 3.1 crore tonnes, operating six integrated cement plants and eight cement grinding units in many states. Its bulk cement terminals are located at Surat, Panvel and Cochin.

In 1993, a comprehensive system was established to capture the profitable cement market in Mumbai. An all-weather port was constructed in Muldwarka, Gujarat, merely 8 kilometres away from the Ambujanagar plant. As a result, many companies started emulating Ambuja Cements’ approach, and now, approximately 10% of cement transportation in India happens via this route.

The company also improved coordination between the Ambuja and ACC plants, resulting in savings on logistics costs. They optimised the pan-India warehouse network which led to improved direct deliveries to customers.

Ambuja Cements is the only manufacturer of specialised cement designed for waterproof building roofs, ensuring enhanced strength and durability. Ambuja Plus Roof Special represents a distinctive grade of PPC cement, known for its enhanced strength, density and leak-resistant properties. Made specifically for Indian climatic conditions, Ambuja Plus Roof Special offers a custom solution for roofing needs.

Ambuja Cements was also the first company to introduce 53-grade cement in the market. It was also the first cement company to receive the ISO 9002 quality certification.

Ambuja Cements is also a plastic-negative company, burning over 1,26,000 tonnes of plastic waste in its kilns—equivalent to 3.5 times the total plastic used. The company derives 2.7% of its power from renewable sources.
