Alqaim Cement Plant is considered one of the main and leading cement producers in Iraq. The Plant is located in Alnbar Provenance 350 kms west of Baghdad and 40kms from Alqaim City, with a designed production capacity of 840,000 up to 1,000,000 Tons of cement (i.e. Bagged & Bulk SRC). In 2008, Al-Maysarah Group had acquired the right to own, operate, and manage Alqaim plant for 15 years –with renewable option- under the Investment & Rehabilitation Program promoted then, by the Iraqi Government.
Within two years since the acquisition of the plant, Al-Maysarah Group had implemented heavy restructuring program, aimed at enhance the plant’s efficiencies and production capacity with a total investment of over $ 60 Million injected over two years. In that direction, a new power plant station of over 24 MW was installed to enhance the production capacity of cement from pre-acquisition levels of nearly 450,000 tons annually up to 1,000,000 tons designed annual production capacity.
Moreover, in terms of management, Al-Maysarah Group had put-in-place new highly skilled and experience management team, for the sole purpose of improving the production and operational efficiencies of the cement plant.
