Hi, welcome to YTL Cement. Let me brief you a bit on YTL Cement.
HISTORY, PURPOSE & GOALS
YTL Cement began operations in 1996 in Bukit Sagu, Pahang. We have grown since then and we now have 4 plants and 1 depot. The details are as below :
PLANT NAME LOCATION
Perak Hanjoong Simen Sdn Bhd Padang Rengas, Perak
Pahang Cement Sdn Bhd Bukit Sagu, Pahang
SLAG Cement Sdn Bhd Westport, Klang
SLAG Southern Sdn Bhd Pasir Gudang, Johor
PHS Trading (Depot) Batu Caves, Selangor
YTL Cement’s purpose in beginning this business is to supply quality cement to local construction companies for a competitive price especially in the eastern corridor of peninsular Malaysia. There were no cement plants in the eastern side of peninsular Malaysia. So, cost of purchasing cement was high due to logistics. Our plant in Pahang solved all issues as we could now provide cement with a much cheaper price.
YTL Cement is currently the second largest cement producer in Malaysia. Our goal is to be the largest cement producer in Malaysia and also southeast Asia. From one cement plant, we have rapidly expanded to four plant now. The goal to be the largest cement producer in Malaysia might come to past earlier than expected.
PRODUCTS & SERVICES
We have 5 brands of bagged product and 4 types of bulk product. The 5 brands in the bagged products are Castle, Orang Kuat, Wallcem, Marinecem and Dragon. Each bag weighs 50 kilogrammes. Each brand is different in terms of uses, strength and suitability. Cement has many uses during the construction process such as brick making, brick laying, concreting, plastering and tiling. So, each brand has its own

    According to (Beevers and Rea 2010) ‘the primary purpose of the learning and development function in fulfilling the short and long term ambitions of the organisation’ cannot be over emphasized especially in recent times where HR/L&D has moved from the past when one of HR/L&D primary roles has been to ensure compliance with laws, rules and regulations.
