The Genesis of NCL Industries Limited can be traced to the Golden Era of entrepreneurial development in Andhra Pradesh (pre-bifurcation) of the early 1980’s. This period marked the emergence of a number of individual entrepreneurs whose fledgling enterprises evolved into well-established industrial groups. Nagarjuna Cement Limited, as the Company was known then, established a mini cement plant at Mattapalli in Nalgonda (now Suryapet) District to augment the supply of scarce cement with relatively low investment. This turned out to be a resounding success. The cement produced under the brand name ‘Nagarjuna’ established a premium image in the coastal districts of Andhra Pradesh. The company expanded the capacity of the cement plant in stages. Starting with a modest capacity of 200 TPD, the company has now grown to a level of >8000 TPD, spread over two locations.
The product range of Cement Division includes Portland Pozzolana Cement (PPC), Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) and Special Cement for manufacture of Railway Sleepers. NCL also has a Ready Mix Concrete Division, which supplies ready mix concrete of dependable quality, using ‘Nagarjuna’ cement, and ensuring reliable quality. The total number of RMC units now stands at four – two each in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, catering to markets adjacent to the cities of Hyderabad and Visakhapatnam.
