Ivory Coast that accounts for 40% of the GDP of West Africa Economic and Monetary Union owing to its rich natural resources and foreign investments is one of 14 Sub-Saharan Countries that do not have the status of the “Least developed Country.” 

Given its commercial potential and cement need of the country, following the comprehensive feasibility studies conducted, Limak Ivory Coast Cement project of which investment was started in 2015 was managed by Limak Cement Group's own team qualified and experienced in this subject matter. Ivory Coast Grinding – Packaging plant, with a production capacity of 1 million tons of cement and 1 million m³ ready mixed concrete, that cost about €65 million is the fourth plant investment founded by Limak Cement Group with its own human resources. 

Two types of cement and ready mixed concrete are produced at the plant, built on an area of 131.290 m², in Abidjan, the largest city and the economic capital of Ivory Coast.

Ivory Coast grinding-packaging plant and ready mixed concrete facility was commissioned in December 2018 in full compliance with the World Bank, ILO and Equator Principles. 

The plant making use of modern technologies with a compact appearance continues its operations with the market share acquired by it in both cement and ready mixed concrete fields and positive consumer feedback even though it has been a very short time since its commissioning. Market share for domestic sales increased when compared to the preceding year.
