It is but fitting to recapture the moments of agony and ecstasy experienced by Late Ramawatar Gutgutia, the Founder CMD of the Company, who undertook to shape the destiny of Burnpur Cement. BCL started its operations in the cement industry in October 1991 & a plant was set up in Asansol, West Bengal to produce Portland Slag Cement (IS 455:1989). Expansion of facilities over the years has resulted to a capacity of 0.3 million metric tonnes per annum, from its Asansol Unit.
The company has set up an integrated cement plant at Patratu, Jharkhand with an installed capacity of 0.3 million metric tonnes per annum with an investment of about Rs 300 crore. The first phase of its Integrated Cement Plant, has started its commercial production, which was inaugurated by the Chief Minister of Jharkhand, Raghubar Das. The plant will be able to produce the three most commonly used types of cement i.e. OPC, PPC and PSC. The Plant has been set with the most sophisticated Technology being used throughout the World for making Clinker i.e. Rotary Kiln Dry Process Technology.
