METROCEM AUTO BRICKS IN BRIEF
With an automatic brick manufacturing factory which produces various quality bricks to meet the local demand, Metrocem Autobricks Ltd. started its journey. The annual production capacity of the project in 3 shift basis is 1.50 corer pcs per annum. The Project has been set up with Chinese machinery and equipment using modern kiln technology. The erection, commission & test run of the project is completed by the local erectors under the supervision of the machinery supplier. The plant has started its operation in mid-2006. In the 1st year of operation it is in operation utilizing 60% capacity and in the 2nd year & 3rd year the plant operated at 75% and 80% capacity accordingly. With its ecofriendly bricks production plants, Metrocem Auto bricks ltd. focuses on providing the world with a solution from air pollution. Instead of using tire, coal low quality oil, we use soft fuel technology gas and high quality coal dual fuel.
In 1988, the founders started their journey by establishing a Trading House of building materials. Their focus was on take advantage of the, then rapid infrastructure development phase of Bangladesh, when the building materials were one of the most essentially needed components for infrastructure development.
In the year of 2000, the pioneers of the group established cement plant to production and supply the ever-increasing need for cement in development sector. At that time period of lesser number of cement producers in Bangladesh, the founders decided it to be prudent and economically feasible to source cement locally.
In 2002, as per the Metrocem’s senior management’s vision, the cement plant was fully operational and started to produce cement, which managed to capture significant portion of markets because of the superior quality it accompanied.
Due to ever-occurring introduction of technological discovery and practices, the cement production did manage to evolve itself while increasing efficiency and effectiveness. To attain these competitive advantages before they become a necessity, Metrocem overhauled and modernized their cement production process at the year of 2005.
At 2008, Metrocem expanded their operations to tap into the lucrative segment of steel manufacturing industry. Keeping alignment with the business of building materials, as their sister concern Metrocem Cement, Metrocem Ispat Limited was envisioned to perform alike in the steelworks industries.
In the year of 2009, Metrocem Group decided to start Shipping business. While providing logistical support to their own functions, they found a greater need for the similar kind of support for various other businesses, which resulted into a successful venture in terms of strategic and economic.
2010 saw the emergence of Eco-friendly Brick manufacturing project by Metrocem Group. Their vision was to manufacture bricks with Fly Ash, Cement to minimizing the adverse environmental effect of the manufacturing process.
Metrocem Miltech, established at 2015, was Metrocem Group’s great leap towards capturing more market share in building materials sectors. This concern’s function was to provide crane & mega infrastructure equipment.
