Business area of the company

The Company is primarily engaged in the manufacture and sale of Cement and its manufacturing facilities at present are located at Devapur in Telangana, Chittapur in Karnataka and Jalgaon in Maharashtra.


Birla.A1 StrongCrete: Birla.A1 StrongCrete is a specially engineered cement for concrete applications such as foundation, beams, columns and slabs.

Birla .A1 Premium Cement: Birla .A1 Premium Cement is manufactured by the inter-grinding of clinker, gypsum and very fine-grained highly reactive fly ash. Its biggest advantage is uniform particle size distribution which gives greater strength, and helps achieve higher density with lower porosity in concrete made from it, leading to increased durability.

Birla .A1 Premium Cement: OPC 53 Grade: One of the pioneers of 53-Grade Cement in India, Orient Cement opened up a whole new dimension in building construction with the launch of Orient Gold 53-Grade Cement in 1992.

Birla .A1 Premium Cement: OPC 43 Grade: Originally named Orient 43 Grade Cement, it was amongst the earliest successes of Orient Cement paving the way for the others to follow.
