Bamburi Cement Wednesday launched a low cost cement targeted at single storey structures in its fresh bid to grow market share.
The cement, called ‘Bamburi Fundi,’ will mainly be used for block laying, repair works as well as internal and external plastering.
A 50 kilogramme bag of Bamburi Fundi will retail at about Sh540 in Nairobi, which is lower than the Sh560 and Sh610 paid for Bamburi Tembo or Bamburi Nguvu in the capital.
Both Tembo and Nguvu are for works that require stronger structural frame like multi-stored buildings and pillars.
Bamburi Cement has in recent years lost market share to privately-owned Savannah Cement and National Cement.
