The foundation stone of Riyadh Cement Company
The foundation stone of Riyadh Cement Company (Saudi White Cement before) was laid in the year 1997 , as the first white cement production plant in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (first line), and its commercial production began in 2001, with a capacity of 230 thousand tons of clinker annually, which was later developed to reach Its production to 320,000 tons annually.
Establishing a second line for the production of grey cement
In the year 2005, the company expanded its scope of work by establishing a second line for the production of grey cement. Commercial production began in 2007, with an annual production capacity of 1.7 million tons of grey clinker.
Established a third line for the production of grey cement
To meet the high demand in the local and regional markets, the company established a third line in 2007 to produce grey cement, which began commercial production in 2010 with an annual production capacity of 1.7 million tons. Thus, the total production capacity of the second and third lines reached 3.4 million tons of grey clinker annually.
Converting one of the grey cement production lines into a dual white and grey cement line
Keeping up with the rapid urban growth of the Kingdom, we enhanced production flexibility by converting one of the grey cement production lines into a dual white and grey cement line, to convert easily between grey or white cement productions as necessary. As a result, we increased our production capacity of white cement to about one million tons annually.
