(Business in Cameroon) - Abdeladim Arnous is the Managing Director of Ciments de d'Afrique (Cimaf). He directs the 3e Cameroon cement plant, with an annual production capacity of 500 tonnes. Against all odds, this former maintenance manager of the Managem group is resisting the tough competition to which he is subjected on the local cement market by Franco-Swiss Lafarge Holcim (Cimencam) and Nigerian Dangote Cement.
Since his arrival 3 years ago, Abdeladim Arnous has been working to strengthen the position of the company he manages on the Cameroonian market. This desire is reflected in the large investments announced in 2019. Indeed, Cimaf aims to triple its production thanks to an investment of FCFA 19 billion. Thanks to this decision taken under the management of Abdeladim Arnous, the Cameroonian subsidiary of the Moroccan group Addoha will equal the production capacities of its competitors on the cement market in the country.
