Peakward imports cement clinker from Saudi Arabia

Peakward Bangladesh Limited, a subsidiary of Hong Kong based Peakward Group, has imported clinker from Saudi Arabia last week, a press statement said.

Clinker is a major raw material for cement manufacturing. As clinker is scarce in Bangladesh, 94 per cent of this material is imported from Saudi Arabia.

A statement released from Argaam, the Saudi Stock Exchange Portal, said Peakward will import 1.5 million ton clinker from Saudi Arabia to Bangladesh.   

Fazle Azim, chairman of Peakward Group, remarked that imported clinker would help produce better quality cement in Bangladesh.
