One of the world's largest integrated manufacturers of building materials, Heidelberg Cement Group made its foray into India in early 2006. The move was motivated by its pursuit for growth which emanated from the opportunities available in the growing market of developing countries. As a part of its growth strategy, the Group acquired controlling stake in Mysore Cements Limited as well as the Indorama Cement Limited Joint Venture, which in 2008 was converted into a complete acquisition.
After the merger of Indorama Cement with Mysore Cements, in 2009, Mysore Cements was renamed Heidelberg Cement India Ltd. Since then there has been no looking back. In 2009, the Company undertook a brownfield capacity expansion in Central India to increase its cement manufacturing capacity from 2.1 million tonnes per annum to 5.4 million tonnes per annum. The company’s Mycem’ and ‘Mycem Power’ - two brands - have become synonymous with 'quality' and 'reliability' the two factors that distinguish good and great cement.

History & Milestones
HeidelbergCement Group entered India in 2006 through a 50:50 JV in Indorama Cement Limited and acquisition of the majority stake in Mysore Cement Limited.
HeidelbergCement Group acquired the balance stake of Indorama Cement in 2008 and merged the operations of the same with Mysore Cement Limited and capacity of the Company increased to 3.07 million tonnes per annum.The merged entity was renamed as HeidelbergCement India Limited w.e.f. April 09.
Having consolidated its operations, the Company completed brownfield expansion of its facilities in Central India in 2013 and cement capacity was increased to 6 million tonnes p.a.
Considering the infrastructural bottlenecks at the Raigad grinding unit, the plant was sold to JSW Steel Ltd. in Jan'14. Post the disposal, HeidelbergCement India's capacity stands at 5.4 Mn Tonne (Two Integrated Plants and One Grinding Unit).
The new manufacturing capacity has enabled the Company to increase its market share in Central India i.e. Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh and in markets of Bihar, Haryana and Uttarakhand. With the help of a committed sales team supported by quality product, the Company has carved a niche for its brand 'mycem' in new markets and has further improved its brand positioning in the existing ones.
Cement grinding Capacity enhanced to 6.26 million tonnes in 2020
