10th Africa CemenTrade Summit

18-19 Apr, 2018 - Dakar, SENEGAL

Radisson Blu Hotel, Dakar Sea Plaza





Industries is 70 years of proven and recognized expertise at the service of construction in Senegal and in the West African sub-region.
The rich experience of SOCOCIM INDUSTRIES, added rigor and quality, has earned the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications, and the recognition of its cements by the European Community. SOCOCIM is thus the only cement plant in West Africa to obtain these three industrial references.

Leading cement plant, SOCOCIM Industries provides a diversified range of products to satisfy all requests of its customers.

Today SOCOCIM INDUSTRIES assists its customers and partners with sound advice and a wide range of cements, up to 3.5 million tons per year, which responds effectively to all construction needs. It is also a point of honor to the societal aspect with the creation of the SOCOCIM Foundation which is involved with the Senegalese associations and is involved in economic projects, cultural and social.


Founded in 1998, LES CIMENTS DU SAHEL is still a newly borne company. His creed, around which he still articulates his strategic development plan, remains the satisfaction of the demand for cement in Senegal and in the sub-region to the happiness of all parties; customers, states, shareholders and lenders.

Its advent happens after a long period of "shortage" observed on the market, the main consequences of which were, in addition to the exaggerated price increase, the notorious slowdown of the buildings noted in the framework of the social housing and that of infrastructures which were suppose to sustain the economic and social development of underdeveloped countries.

From the beginning of its conception, its promoter Mr. Latffalah LAYOUSSE, who has chosen to put forward the Senegalese genius in his immediate entourage, has been implementing a sustainable strategy development plan to bring the company LES CIMENTS DU SAHEL to the best position a cement company could be: a state-of-the-art and a high-tech cement plant in line with international environmental standards.

>Its initial cost of 100 Million Euros, jump to 300 million Euros with the extension of the capacity of production three (3) years after the date of its first production. LES CIMENTS DU SAHEL represents the largest private investment ever made in Senegal since independence. Currently, the company is about to realize its second extension of its production capacity with a total investment of 350 million Euros.

The specific identity of the company LES CIMENTS DU SAHEL lies in the major interest that its promoter Mr. Latfallah LAYOUSSE, also CEO and chief executive of the company, grants for the protection of the environment and the promotion of social works.

Regarding the environmental aspects in particular, the company has implemented a real policy on the site and throughout its neighborhoods, to prevent nuisances of all kinds and preserve natural resources. It has also created a nursery of more than 100,000 plants of all species to contribute in its own way to the reforestation of the Sahelian zone.
