ORIGIN Foundation

Jammu & Kashmir Cements Ltd. was incorporated as fully owned Government Company in December, 1974. The installation work for 600 tonnes per day capacity dry process Plant, Rotary horizontal Kiln, started at Khrew in District Pulwama-Kashmir nearly 23 Kms. away from Srinagar in 1975 and was completed in October, 1981. The plant which was then in a heavy sector industries list started commercial production in April, 1982 with Brand Name as 'Jehlum Brand Cement' OPC-43 Grade, BIS No. 8112. The plant is situated near rich deposits of high quality lime stone which help in production of quality cement. After having viewed the growing demand of the cement in the Valley, another plant of similar capacity was established in the year 2008. Since then, the JKCL is un-interruptedly supplying quality cement of 43 Grade "Jehlum Brand" to Government Departments as well as private market.

PHILOSOPHY

To exploit the abundant deposits available near the plant site. To make the quality cement available to the consumers at reasonable rates.
To fill up the gap between demand and supply.

SITE SELECTION

The plant is situated near rich deposits of high quality lime stone which help in production of quality cement.

PRODUCT LINE

The Plant started producing quality variety of Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) 33 Grade and Pozzolana Portland Cement (PPC) under "Jhelum Brand" with Bureau of Indian Standards certification. This brand is registered with the Trade Mark Registry Bombay, Government of India. At that time Pozzolana Cement was manufactured by using Brick Bats. This did not sail smoothly in the market due to radish color of cement on account of usage of Brick Bats. The Company discontinued its production of PPC in 1997 and started manufacturing Ordinary Portland Cement 43-Grade.

ADDITIONAL PRODUCT LINE

Now the position is different and in view of the changed scenario in Indian Cement Industry the major producers have started using alternatives Fly ash in manufacture of blended cement which not only has reduced their cost of production but also have improved the environment. The Company is also going to add this variety of cement to its product line by manufacturing Fly Ash based Pozzolana port land cement. We approached Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and obtained license for manufacture of Fly Ash based blended cement. By introducing this variety of cement in the market, the Company would be able to reduce the cost of production and appear in more competition with major producers in the market.

DISTRIBUTION NETWORK:

The Company sells its cement at three levels. These are:-
1. To Government and Semi Government agencies within the State.
2. To DGS&D through an Annual Rate Contract for Central Government Offices within State, Defense agencies and to Boarder Road Organization in the State.
3. To General Public through its network of 70 distributors spread all over the State.
