BigBloc-SCG collabs to launch construction Plant in Gujarat

A joint venture between BigBloc Construction Ltd., based in Gujarat, and SCG International India Pvt Ltd., based in Thailand, has established SIAM Cement BigBloc Construction Technologies Pvt Ltd. (Subsidiary of BigBloc Construction Ltd).

The company has started producing its 2.5 lakh cubic metres per year Greenfield project in the Kheda district near Ahmedabad (Gujarat). The joint venture business will use the facilities to produce AAC Blocks and ALC panels, which it will then sell under the moniker “ZMARTBUILD WALL by Nxtbloc.”

An estimated ₹ 65 crore would be invested in the Kheda project. The plant can produce between 50,000 and 60,000 carbon credit units annually. When operating at maximum efficiency, the factory should bring in about ₹ 100 crore annually. Along with bringing cutting-edge building materials to Indian markets, the joint venture hopes to foster mutual growth and cooperation in the construction industry and the sharing of techno-commercial expertise. If both joint venture parties approve, the Kheda Kapadvanj project can be enlarged to 5 lakh CBM per year in its second phase.

BigBloc Construction and Siam Cement Group (SCG) of Thailand formed a strategic joint venture in 2021, intending to establish a cutting-edge production plant for ALC panels and AAC blocks in Kheda District, close to Ahmedabad (Gujarat). SCG owns 48 percent of the joint venture company, while BigBloc Construction has 52 percent of it. The SCG Group’s initial investment in India is this. SCG, one of the biggest suppliers of building materials and cement in Thailand and Southeast Asia, was founded in 1913.

Furthermore, the company’s fully owned subsidiary, Bigbloc Building Elements Pvt. Ltd., has started construction on the second phase of the AAC block facility, which will have a capacity of 2.5 lakh cubic metres annually, at Wada in Palghar, Maharashtra. The enterprise will rank among the biggest in the nation after all current expansion is completed, bringing its total capabilities to 13.75 lakh cubic metres annually.
