CEMENT & CONCRETE R&D LAB – AN EXPRESS WAY TO
CUSTOMER ORIENTATION

Dalmia Research Centre

Customer delight has always been the bottom line of Dalmia Culture and taking this thought forward, when we found out that our customers need support to overcome concrete related difficulties and achieve best results in construction, while our prestigious products are used for varying types and grades of concrete (under ever fluctuating site conditions), we were inspired to go for an R&D Lab dedicated to Cement & Concrete.

Within just four months of signing the Capex, results were there for everyone to see. We wonder whether history has ever witnessed anything of a similar magnitude take shape this fast! It was yet another example of exceptional team work as without the ceaseless support from our team members we would have never been able to overcome all the daunting challenges thrown our way. Be it the challenges in partial implementation of SAP, remote assigning of asset code or the scarcity of manpower, our team remained focused on the task at hand, like Arjuna’s undivided attention on the bird’s eye, making 14th September 2010, possible.

It was indeed a day to remember. Situated in the industrial heart of Balaji Nagar, Chennai, our R&D facility was inaugurated amidst huge applause. The facility that extends to an area of 2500 sq. ft and comprises of various sections like customer cell, chemical, physical, and concrete lab, is a landmark in its own right. It is fully equipped with state-of-the-art machinery for complete tests of concrete, cement and aggregates.

This R&D lab will focus on solving practical problems faced by customers regarding concrete and cement help propagate good concrete practices. The Lab will explore innovative means to exceed the customer expectations through research work. This will also be an arena for domestic & customer training.

With this, we have set out on the high road to excellence and we strongly believe that we very close to a path breaking approach to arrive at excellence. In fact, Dalmia cement is the first cement manufacturing company to set up an R&D lab for concrete in the country!
