A statement by Ambuja Cement said the acquisition will be fully funded through internal accruals.
Sanghi Industries Limited (SIL) has a clinker capacity of 6.6 million tonnes per annum, cement capacity of 6.1 million tonnes per annum and limestone reserves of 1 billion tonne.
SIL’s Sanghipuram unit is India’s largest single-location cement and clinker unit by capacity, with a captive jetty and captive power plant.
This acquisition will boost Ambuja Cement’s production capacity to 73.6 million tonnes per annum.
The statement said its goal to reach 140 million tonnes per annum capacity by 2028 will be achieved ahead of time.
“Our aim is to make SIL the lowest cost producer of clinker in the country. Ambuja will increase the cement capacity at Sanghipuram to 15 MTPA in the next two years,” the company said.
