In 2005, Dalmia Bharat was no more than a bit player in the cement industry with an installed capacity of 1.2 million tonnes per annum (mtpa). This was when India had a total capacity of 150 mtpa. Today, Dalmia has reached 25 mtpa through a series of inorganic and organic initiatives against a national capacity of 440 mtpa, making it the fourth largest player after UltraTech, LafargeHolcim and Shree Cement, with an enviable position in the south, east and north-east markets.
After consolidating its position in the South and East, Dalmia Bharat is snapping up distressed assets to gain a national footprint
