An across-the-board order for BCERAM Wilaya of Sétif (Algeria). The goal is to produce large, high-end formats to strengthen its position on domestic and international markets. Mr. Bouhadra: “We’re extremely satisfied with the results achieved with SACMI and with the project in progress”
The technological partnership between SACMI and Algerian company Bceram goes from strength to strength with the signing of a new contract to expand their ‘large format’ line. This complete plant, equipped with latest-generation SACMI technology, is set to double the customer's high-end output capacity.
Following on from other successful projects in recent years, SACMI has supplied Bceram with all the key machines. These range from body preparation to the PH3800 press, the multi-level ECP dryer, the kiln and the glazing and sorting lines, with complete handling, packaging and palletizing solutions designed by SACMI.
“We’re extremely satisfied with this project" stated Mr. Bouhadra, speaking on behalf of the company’s owners; Bceram is one of the most dynamic players in Algeria, a market that’s always been crucial for SACMI as projects there tends to be high-quality and high-quantity. This investment, continues Bouhadra, “will allow us to expand both volumes and the product portfolio in the strategic high-end, large-slab segment”.
Already delivered, the plant has been started up and is now fully operational. Bceram aims to increase its export quotas, hence the decision to invest in the best technological-production standards on the market.
