Cement Industry

Star Cement, a Dubai-based premium quality cement and clinker manufacturer, has made a significant turnaround in its machinery downtime and increased output since it switched from mild steel to Hardox Wear Plate steel grades manufactured by Swedish steel giant SSAB. The decision has helped decrease downtime by nearly 45 per cent.

Bahrain's construction sector is set for a major boost as Saudi Arabia has reportedly lifted export duties on cement.
