Qatrana Cement Company (QCC)
In order to achieve the ambitious strategic directions and within the framework of the geographical expansion of the Arab Cement Company, the company’s management has chosen to establish a cement factory in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, believing in its investment-attracting environment, along with its promising market potentials, where the growing need for basic cement material for the construction sector in light of the increasing urban movement, and large government projects accompanying the comprehensive economic renaissance currently witnessed by Jordan.
The Qatranah Cement Company was established, with an investment amounting to 400 million dollars in the Qatraneh area in Karak Governorate, and the site was chosen 90 km south of Amman.
It is a deliberate choice in terms of its location and its distance from population density, in addition to the availability of limestone in this region, which is the main material in the cement industry.
The Qatrana Cement Company hires the great expertise of the Arab Cement Company in the production of cement to serve the Jordanian market where the best modern technologies are used in the cement industry, and accordingly contracted with the German KHD Company to supply the special equipment for the factory. KHD is considered one of the oldest companies specialized in building Cement factories, with more than 150 years of experience in this industry. Furthermore, the Qatraneh factory was supplied with electrical energy through an exclusive power plant with a capacity of 49 megawatts, containing 7 diesel generators made by the Finnish company Wärtsla, with a production capacity up to 5000A ton of clinker per day. Since one of the most important distinct goals set for the Qatraneh Cement Project is the active contribution to the economic development of Jordan, a contract has been signed with the Jordanian Central Contracting Company to complete all construction and civil works, due to the company’s wide and distinguished experience in this field. The company is keen on providing a healthy environment for employees and citizens, by investing and contributing to projects of pollution control stations and dust emission. The company attaches special importance to preserving the environment in line with the strategies set for the company, and uses the latest technologies and filters in the cement industry.
The company is usually keen on developing the areas surrounding its factories by providing various social programs, whether educational or recreational or any other social programs, according to the needs of the local community.
As for administrative systems and production management, the company uses the latest computer technology and information systems in line with the requirements of the modern industry to reduce the cost of production and increase the productivity of workers and administrators through the job benefits provided by the company, along with investing in training and skills development for workers.
