:: Our Vision

To strengthen our position as the cement industry leader in our geographical markets

PPC Zimbabwe currently operates in central SADC, an area of emerging markets. As these markets develop, so we stand poised to grow and expand, setting ourselves the target of becoming the preferred source of cement and cement products in the region.
