quality. The product is tailor-made to complement the efforts and promote the
businesses of artisans, specifically block makers and other building
construction workers.

technological advancement in the Nigerian manufacturing sector. Our global
presence and Research Centre in Lyon, France provides a unique opportunity for
us to deliver in line with best practices and create innovative products and
solutions that deliver more value to our customers.

cement products that do not guarantee the strength needed for construction of
buildings and other strong high concrete construction works.”

Also speaking at the event, the Commercial Director
of Lafarge Africa Plc, Gbenga Onimowo, acknowledged that the new product was in
response to customer needs and in line with global industry standards.

“We launched Supaset because we have a unique
understanding of the needs of our customers. With access to global best
practices, innovative solutions from the LafargeHolcim group, we were able to
identify and introduce Supaset to provide real solutions in construction. We
understand the huge losses people have experienced due to the lack of cement
formulation that guarantees fast setting and superior quality.”

“Supaset, just like the name suggests, is a rapid-setting cement that enables blocks to set fast, while retaining its quality and ensuring no cracks and breakages, making it the only cement with such capabilities in the market today.https://www.newtelegraphng.com/2019/10/lafarge-relaunches-cement-product/
