Cement Industry

Our history

Strong business is an amalgamation of strong relationships

Our history

Founded in 1935 by Jaidayal Dalmia; the cement division of DCBL was established in 1939 and enjoys a heritage of 70 years of expertise and experience. We are headquartered in New Delhi with cement, sugar, travel agency, magnesite, refractory and electronic operations spread across the country.

The Dalmia Group had established four cement plants in pre-independence years, two of which were affected by the partition and Independence. The two remaining plants operate as Dalmia Cement and we have also made strategic investment in Orissa Cements Limited(OCL). Managed by a professional team, we have sustained the path to innovation and growth for seven decades.

Early on in our history we learnt that a strong business is an amalgamation of strong relationships. The key to establishing such relationships is to learn from each other, to enjoy a spirit of camaraderie, and to recognize and identify with their needs of the people we work with. Today with their rich experience we have been able to broaden our horizons to include a holistic approach to the best practices in the industry.

DCBL prides itself on having been at the forefront of pioneering and introducing many new technologies, which exist today, which are followed by others in the industry. DCBL has been and continues to be an industry leader in the niche market segments.

This timeline highlights some of the significant moments that took place over the years and shows how our business has evolved.
