Why Do We Import Cement Instead of Sourcing Locally?

Our valued clients that have known and trusted us for years, understand that we import only the highest quality cement.

As we grow our business, we often get asked about the reasoning for importing when we could be sourcing locally, creating jobs and growing the economy.

What these people don’t understand, is this: by importing our superior quality cement, we are actually doing the South African industry more good than harm.

For years now, local cement manufacturers have enjoyed a monopoly within the industry, which results in higher prices for cement. This adversely affects small and medium sized businesses who simply cannot afford the high prices of cement to be able to run competitive businesses within construction and other industries.

With nobody to help regulate the big guys, who knows how much a bag of cement would cost today?

At Die Sement Depot, we made a decision to import our high quality cement and in doing so, we are supporting major local employment opportunities by providing a competitive product that helps to regulate the monopoly within the industry.

If you would like more information about our products and how we support South Africans in their communities, please feel free to contact us.
