- Block Makers Laud Dangote on New Cement
Block Moulders Association of Nigeria has commended the Dangote Group for its new cement, BlocMaster.
The Chairman of the block moulders in Suleja, Niger State, Chief Patrick Markuche, who described the new product as Dangote’s best in terms of quality, said it had helped improve the association’s members’ revenue.
He said members of the association had passed a vote of confidence on the cement as well as the company.
“This is the best product from Dangote so far. We have tested it and we are very happy with the result we got so far. Even in the rain, this cement is the best for the purpose,” he said.
In a statement on Sunday, Dangote Cement said a distributor, Alhaji Mukhtar Moriki of Albabelo Company, said block makers now demand for more of the cement.
Dangote’s National Sales and Distribution Director, Adeyemi Fajobi, said the new cement was carefully made as part of the company’s improvement on innovation.
He said, “Our customers, and key distributors are happy because of the strength and quality of this product. It is also very affordable and it gives them far more yields than all other cements in the market. It is currently the highest grade of cement in Nigeria.”
“It is by far the strongest cement, bagged in the Nigerian market. This cement is 50 per cent stronger after one day and up to 15 per cent stronger after 28 days when the cement finally sets, so that explains the excitement displayed by our retailers and key distributors across the country.”
Fajobi said BlocMaster was a product of years of research, created with high quality to give users value for money by eliminating loss.
