Welcome to Tanzania Portland Cement Public Limited Company

Established in 1966, Tanzania Portland Cement Public Limited Company (TPC PLC) is the leading cement producer in Tanzania and a proud member of the Heidelberg Materials Group. Our journey began with the production of our first bag of cement at Wazo Hill in mid-1966.

Over the years, TPC PLC has undergone significant changes. We were nationalized in 1978, privatized in 1998, and are now a publicly-traded company on the Dar es Salaam Stock Exchange (DSE). Heidelberg Cement holds a 69.25% stake in TPC PLC via Scancem International DA, with the remaining 30.75% held by the general public of the United Republic of Tanzania.

We pride ourselves on producing high-quality cement that meets the standards set by the Tanzania Bureau of Standards (TBS). Our product portfolio includes five main brands: Twiga Ordinary (42.5N), Twiga Plus (42.5N), Twiga Extra (32.5R), Twiga Super (32.5N), and Twiga Jenga (MC 22.5X).

Our commitment to growth and excellence led us to complete an expansion program in 2009, increasing our production capacity to 1.4 million metric tons per year. This capacity was further increased to 2.0 million metric tons per year under the project name CM5 by August 2014.

At TPC PLC, we are more than just a cement company. We are a team dedicated to delivering quality and value to our customers, contributing to the infrastructure of Tanzania, and creating a sustainable future
