MBEYA Cement Company (MCC), producers and distributors of Tembo Cement have launched a new package for their product in a bid to improve services to its clients.
MCC General Manager Mbuvi Ngunze said in a statement on Tuesday the Tembo Cement new look was part of the firm's celebrations to mark 10 years of Lafarge in Tanzania.
Lafarge is the world's leading manufacturer of building materials, specializing in production of cement, aggregates, concrete and gypsum.
The French company came to Tanzania in 2001 through investing in Mbeya Cement Company Limited.
"Our new bag has mainly been designed to overcome cement leakage during loading and offloading, which are part of the processes involved in the movement of our product from one point to another," said Ngunze.
He emphasized that the quality and quantity of Tembo Cement would remain the same that customers have known over the years. Lafarge owns 65 per cent shares in MCC, while the government and NSSF own 25 per cent and 10 per cent of shares, respectively.
MCC operations include a head office in Dar es Salaam and a fully integrated plant located at Songwe Industrial area along the Tunduma Zambia highway in Mbeya Region.
It also maintains eight depots across the country - Dar es Salaam, Dodoma, Iringa, Makambako, Mbeya, Songea, Sumbawanga and Kigoma.
