SON Approves Dangote’s New Cement Grade



Dangote Cement Plc has formally received approval from the Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) to begin distribution of 42.5 higher grade of cement into the Nigerian market.

According to the SON, an inspection of the company’s manufacturing equipment has been carried out across the nation and results show that the production processes have been upgraded to efficiently manufacture the 42.5 cement grade, which provides higher strength in building and construction.

SON made this declaration during Dangote’s pre-media launch of the newly-introduced cement grade, Dangote 3X cement, in Lagos.

The SON Director General, Dr. Joseph Odumodu, who was represented by an enforcement official of the agency, Mr. Adeoye Onipede, commended the move by Dangote to increase its value proposition to Nigerians with the new product and encouraged the company to keep abiding by the set manufacturing standards.
