Engagement that Enthralls
Cement has the power to translate human creativity into reality. When architects and engineers dream buildings and their bold strokes revolutionise building designs it is cement – the artist – that gives them real shape and permanency. Build Beautiful – UltraTech’s new campaign – is a tribute to human ingenuity and a compliment to people who live in these stunning structures made possible by cement.
With the massive shortages in housing and the need to rapidly industrialise, the coming years are expected to record a huge growth in demand for cement. UltraTech’s goal is to scale its capacity to 74 MTPA by 2016 so that it can ensure that this outstanding brand is readily available to everyone who desires top quality.
One of the things it has done to achieve this was to acquire Jaypee Cement’s integrated plant at Sewagram and the grinding unit at Wanakbori in Gujarat increasing its capacity by 4.80 MTPA. The two plants are the 12thintegrated unit and 12thgrinding unit respectively for UltraTech Cement in India.
UltraTech is and has always been “The Engineer’s choice”. With its current campaign, it acknowledges the aspiration of engineers to Build Beautiful. When an engineer builds, he builds structures that last and every structure is his style statement, an everlasting testament to his expertise. With Build Beautiful, UltraTech urges engineers to make every building a tribute to creativity, an enabler of dreams and ambitions.
