Lafarge Cement Zimbabwe opens new warehouse in Bluffhill to bring product closer to the customer 

Lafarge Cement Zimbabwe has opened a cement warehouse in Bluffhill-Harare in a move aimed at positioning the product closer to the customer and consequently increase sales volumes this year.

 

The new warehouse is located at Stand 661 Blufhill, Corner Harare Drive & Lorraine Drive.

 

In an interview, Sales Director Mr Burusa Mandipezano said the warehouse has the capacity of handling 1400KT of cement at any given time. He said opening of the new warehouse was part of the 2015 strategy to bring product closer to the customer and recover market share lost to competition last year.

 

"We lost market share to competition last year because the product was far from the customer. We are opening a warehouse to improve product availability in the market and are optimistic that the move will significantly improve our sales volumes," said Mr Burusa.

 

He added that two more warehouses would be opened in Chitungwiza this year. According to Mr Burusa, due to the tight liquidity in the market, retailors last year will stock product as when they were liquid. As a result Lafarge product was not constantly available especially in the Chitungwiza market giving room to competition to gain market share.

 

Mr Burusa was optimistic of improved sales volumes this year, adding that his team was committed to even to surpass the targeted 357 000KT.

Lafarge rolls out sustainable community waste management initiative in Mabvuku.

Lafarge Cement Zimbabwe has launched a sustainable community waste management initiative in Mabvuku-Tafara in attempt to ensure an all-time clean environment in the community for the benefit also of the generations to come.

 

In this initiative Lafarge Cement Zimbabwe in partnership with the Harare City Council and the local community and other technical partners will set up a waste management centre for the community which expected to be functional in the 3rd quarter of 2015. Setting up of the waste management center will see Lafarge forging further partnership with other technical parties for sorting and reselling of the waste that will generate revenue for the community.

 

To further ensure the sustainability of the initiative, Lafarge has from the community identified and trained 80 anti-litter monitors to ensure the successful implementation of the programme. The anti- litter monitors will work with community and provide guidance in ensuring sustainable management of waste.

 

Lafarge in partnership with the Harare City Council also conducted a clean-up campaign which involved the removal of unsanctioned dump sites in Mabvuku Tafara District.

 

The launch of the sustainable waste management initiative was in sync with the Lafarge Health and Safety month campaign rolled out in May under the theme, MY ACTIONS, MY IMPACT: OUR PROGRESS. The campaign was supported by three pillars namely commitment, being open and uncompromising. This called for individuals to reflect on their actions and take progressive actions with regards to health and safety for the benefit of all.


"This year Lafarge Cement Zimbabwe will be focusing on sustainable waste management. We are using various opportunities to inculcate the health and safety culture among the communities we live and operate in,'' said Lafarge Marketing and Communications Director Edith Matekaire.

 

"Improving waste management practices in the community leads to an overall benefit of a cleaner and healthier community. This is particularly important in an area like Mabvuku - Tafara which is prone to typhoid and cholera outbreak largely due to persistent water shortages."
