We’ve built foundation-Lafarge

LAFARGE has set a strong and firm foundation for infrastructure development in Zambia through the provision of quality products that are suitable for almost every area of development starting from construction of houses to roads.

Company corporate affairs and sustainable development Director Eugene Chungu said Lafarge, which was a household name in the manufacturing of quality cement, would always offer its customers top quality solutions for their specific needs.

Mr Chungu told the Daily Nation at the 51st Zambia International Trade Fair (ZIFT) in Ndola that Lafarge was contributing to the development of the country because almost every sector, in terms of infrastructure development, had the footprint of Lafarge.

“At Lafarge, we provide quality products that are suitable for every area of infrastructure development starting from house construction to road construction. We will always offer our customers top quality solutions for their needs.

“We will not compromise on quality and our products are the same  today, tomorrow and forever. Those who have not used our products, they can attest to the quality of our products by finding out from our customers. Our products are building better cities, ” Mr Chungu said.

He also said Lafarge had products for specific construction works such as Lafarge Aggregate Business.

“In support of the development of Zambia’s growing construction industry, and in support of the work of our valued customers, Lafarge is proud to introduce its quality aggregates products to the Zambian market.

“Lafarge aggregates products are designed  for a variety of construction applications. Lafarge currently offers Fine aggregates and Course Aggregates. In concrete applications, Fine Aggregates will reduce the amount of cement required by filling voids within coarse Aggregates.


“The use of high quality Course Aggregates allows for reduced cement and water requirements in a concrete application, thus resulting in a more economical concrete. Lafarge currently offers 5 to 8mm stone, 8 to13mmstone, 13 to 22mmstone, 22 to 40mm stone.
