In 1999, HeidelbergCement acquired its operations in Bangladesh. Our subsidiary HeidelbergCement Bangladesh Ltd., which is the market leader in Bangladesh, operates two cement grinding plants in Dhaka, the capital city, and in Chittagong. In order to benefit from steady growth in the Bangladeshi cement market, we have built an additional cement mill with a capacity of 0.8 million tonnes in our Chittagong grinding plant. After successful test runs at the end of 2011, production commenced at the start of 2012.
