Tokyo Cement invests Rs.2.5bn to expand Colombo Port terminal capacity Image_d724662732


  • Once fully operational, the terminal will handle 450, 000 MT of cement per annum

  • Expansion will increase Tokyo’s imports operation from 600,000 MT p.a. to over 1,000,000 MT p.a. to supplement its local production capacity of over 3,000,000MT p.a.  




The Tokyo Cement Group recently commissioned operations of the newly expanded capacity at the Tokyo Cement Colombo Port Terminal in a soft opening ceremony. 
The event is the culmination of Rs. 2.5 billion worth investment by the cement giant, held under the auspices of S.R. Gnanam, Managing Director and Christopher Fernando, Executive Director of Tokyo Cement Co. (Lanka) PLC. 
This operations expansion further reiterates the company’s commitment to boost the local economy as a truly Sri Lankan organisation.
Once fully operational, the Tokyo Cement terminal situated inside the Colombo Port will be geared to handle a total capacity of 450,000 MT of cement per annum.  

 With the newly commissioned storage, bagging and distribution capacity expansion project Tokyo Cement provides a fresh assurance of an uninterrupted cement supply for customers in the Western Province.  
The capacity upgrade of Tokyo Cement Colombo terminal will come online when all three new cement storage silos, each with a capacity of 6,000 MT, become fully operational.  
This terminal expansion ramps up Tokyo Cement’s total bulk cement imports operation from 600,000 MTp.a. to over 1,000,000MTp.a. to supplement Tokyo Cement’s local production capacity of over 3,000,000 MTp.a.  
Adding more storage and local distribution capacity to the bulk cement operation will result in better local value creation that benefits a vast network of suppliers attached to local packaging, distribution and logistics operations as opposed to importing bagged cement as a finished product. 
In line with this expansion, the company doubled bulk cement distribution operations carried out at the Tokyo Cement Colombo terminal from 30,000 MT to 60,000 MT during the month of December.
Apart from providing a firm solution to prevent the cement shortage prevalent in the market currently, this move ensured efficient cement distribution to reach consumers in every part of the island.   As the country’s largest cement manufacturer, this far-sighted project was initiated as part of the company’s readiness plan to cater to the growth in demand in the local construction industry.  
In addition, the company also laid foundation recently for a factory expansion project that will increase its manufacturing capacity by another 1 million metric tons. Through these unified efforts focused on enriching our local economy through local value addition, Tokyo Cement Group strongly reaffirms the company’s position as the leading partner in nation-building.
