Large-scale development works were initiated in the emerging and developing Turkey of the 1950s. As a result of researches performed for the supply of the cement to be used in these studies, it was decided that a cement plant with a capacity of 150.000 tons / year would be established in Adana, taking into account the development and consumption data of Cukurova.

The efforts for establishment were started in 1953 under the leadership of Turkiye Emlak Bankasi, Akbank and Turkiye Is Bankasi, and Cukurova Cimento Sanayii T.A.S (Cukurova Cement Industry Trade Inc.) was officially incorporated on 7th October 1954, and started production and sales of cement in 1957. 2.775 tons cement were exported to Cyprus, marking the first cement export.

With its facilities extended to the Mediterranean Region and Cyprus, Adana Cement currently has an annual production capacity of 2 million tons of gray clinker, 300.000 tons of white clinker, 5.15 million tons of gray cement, and 350.000 tons of white cement.

Gray and white cement production is performed at the central plant of Adana Cement. The entire gray and white clinker production capacity is positioned at the central plant, and the plant also has an annual cement production capacity of 3.5 million in Adana.


There are a total of 7 ready-mix concrete plants, 5 of which (Iskenderun, Antakya, Kirikhan, Narduzu and Samandag) provide service in Hatay, and the remaining 2 of which (Arpacbahsis and Mersin) provide service in Mersin.

Among such plants, Iskenderun, Kirikhan, Arpacbahsis and Mersin plants have been rented out. Ready-mix concrete plants located in Antakya, Samandag and Narduzu, provide service within the organization of the Company.

The ready-mix concrete production capacity of 3 plants is 330.000 m³/year in total.


The slag and slag cement grinding plant with a capacity of 1 million ton/year, which has been operating since 1977, and which was purchased by Adana Cement in 2007, was established in order to assess the slag, which is the by-product of Iskenderun Iron & Steel Plant; and it is the biggest slag cement seller of Turkey.


It is the slag and slag cement grinding plant with a capacity of 1 million ton/year, which was put into operation in the second quarter of 2009 (April 2009), and which is situated within the site of Iskenderun Iron & Steel Plant, and which utilizes the state-of-the-art technologies.


The plant, which was established in 2006 in order to carry out bulk and bagged cement marketing activities in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, continues to contribute to the development of the region.
