The company “Bizerte Cement” (SCB) will increase its production by 50% in early 2014 to reach 1.5 million tons of binder per year, according to estimates by the company’s management.

CBS plays an important role in the regulation of the cement market in addition to its social role. 570 employees of whom 250 were recruited after the revolution work there.
