Warsaw (Puls Biznesu) – The cement producers operating in Poland note sales increase. This year, the growth rate may amount to 15 percent.

 

In August, the cement sales grew 18.2 percent against August 2005. The cement plants sold 1,626,000 tons of cement, up from 1,375,800 a year earlier. There are no official data for September but the representatives of the sector say that they won’t be worse. The rising trend has been noted since January. In May, the biggest amount of cement was sold: 1,715,400 tons. Within eight months, sales grew 17.2 percent in comparison to the same period of last year and exceeded 8.9m tons. The representatives of the sector expect that this year sales will be 15 percent bigger than in 2005.

 

“For the last five months, we have been noting the maximum sales level of 250,000 tons monthly. It will probably be like that in the future as well”, Andrzej Ptak, Cementownia Ozarow cement plant CEO said.

This is not the only plant working at full capacity.

“All cement producers are in the same situation. But there are no shortages of cement”, Janusz Miluch, Lafarge Cement sales director stressed.

The producers operating in Poland are able to produce up to 16m tons of cement annually. Specialists expect that sales will grow 5-10 percent in the upcoming two years.
