… As company holds awareness training for block moulders
By Etuka Sunday
The Enugu Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (ECCIMA) has commended Dangote Group for the training it organised for block makers in Enugu as part of trade fair activities, saying the training was timely.
The Company in a statement said the aim was to create maximum awareness on the competitive advantages of its new 42.5 cement grade.
The block makers were trained on the proper use of the new cement and physical demonstration of sandcrete mixing with the 3x.
The Director General, ECCIMA, Mr. Emeka Okereke while speaking at the training and block making demonstration lauded Dangote cement management for the initiative which he described as another dimension to the normal corporate social responsibility (CSR) project.
According to him, the training is more of a safety initiative designed to arrest the spate of building collapse as a result of sharp practices and wrong use of materials especially in block moulding.
He charged other companies in the building and construction sector to emulate Dangote Cement in organising training, seminars and demonstrations for stakeholders.
Okereke expressed the ECCIMA’s happiness at the special cement offer of the Dangote during which bags of cement were sold at factory price to the amazement of the visitors and other participants at the fair.
He described as worthy of emulation the leading roles played by Dangote Cement in the implementation of the backward integration policy of the Federal Government which has led the nation into not only attaining self- sufficiency in local cement production but also for export.
Regional Sales Director, South East, Dangote Cement, Mr. Tunde Mabogunje, while welcoming the block moulders said the introduction of the new 3x is the beginning of a new partnership between the company and block makers in the state.
He charged them to make use of the new Dangote3x cement which offers extra strong, extra life and extra yield for both the block makers and other customers.
In his presentation to the block moulders, Johnson Olaniyi, the Regional Manager, Marketing Services of Dangote Cement Plc highlighted the advantages and differentiated between the new Dangote 3X Cement and other brands in the market.
