Anjani Portland Cement Limited, formerly known as M/s. Shez Cement Limited was set up in the year 1983 at Chintalapalem Village in Nalgonda District of Andhra Pradesh. The unit was set up in technical collaboration with Nihon Cement Company of Japan. This Rotary Kiln Plant has the distinction of being one of the most modern plants in the mini-cement sector in the country. ‘The State of art’ machinery includes a 5-stage suspension pre-heater rotary kiln with a pre-calcinater.
In the year 1999 Mr. K.V.Vishnu Raju, erstwhile Managing Director of M/s. Raasi Cement Limited along with their associates took over the management control of the ailing Company.
Under the new management the plant commenced commercial production within nine months of takeover, on 29th December 1999. The very first batch of Clinker that was produced attained standard quality, in spite of the machinery being idle for more than 10 years. The plant faced initial teething problems during the first six months of production. Certain modifications were carried out in the different areas such as kiln feed system, pre-calcinater, secondary firing and cooling system.
Even during the tough times after taking over the company is able to retain all experienced technical and marketing personnel who supported the company during this critical period. After 2005 the cement industry was in uptrend and we were able to debug the plant operations to increase our production capacity and improve our dispatches from 3 lakh tones per annum to a present level of 5.25 lakh MT annually. Thus the company has achieved a phenomenal growth within a short span of 9 years. All this was made possible due to lot of additional investment to the tune of Rs. 25 crores made to upgrade the plant and technology by adding RABH, Elevators, Deep Pan Conveyer, Dust Collectors, and LNV Separators etc.
Subsequently the plant stabilized and attained 100Percent production capacity in the first full year of operations. This has led to substantial reduction in coal and power consumption.
