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.
