The Genesis of NCL Industries can be traced to the Golden Era of entrepreneurial development in Andhra Pradesh of early 1980’s. This period marked the emergence of a number of individual entrepreneurs whose initial enterprises evolved into well established industrial groups over a period of time.
Nagarjuna Cement Limited, as the Company was known then, established mini cement plant at Mattapalli in Nalgonda District to augment the supply of scarce cement with relatively low investment was resounding success.
The Cement produced under brand name ‘Nagarjuna’ established a premium brand image in the Coastal districts of Andhra Pradesh. The Company expanded the Capacity of the Cement Plant by stages from 200 TPD to 900 TPD.
During early nineties, NCL diversified its activity by setting up a Boards plant near its Cement plant for manufacture of ‘Bison Panels’ in Technical Collaboration with Bison Werke of Germany, the world leaders in Particle Board Technology.
NCL carried out considerable R&D and developed a system suitable to our country that has flexibility and adoptability to suit individual requirement of customers. Since then there has been an exponential growth in productivity and turnover, the capacity of the Cement production is increased in 2 stages. Stage one envisaged by increasing the Capacity of Clinker from 900 Tons to 1800 Tons at Mattapalli, by setting up a grinding unit at Kondapalli to produce 1000 Tons of Cement per day making a total of 1900 Tons per day.
While Stage 2 envisages setting up a 3000 TPD Clinker unit at Mattapalli to produce additional 2000 TPD of Cement at Mattapalli and 2000 Tons of Cement at Kondapalli. Thus making a total of 5900 TPD which amounts to 2 million tons per annum including PPC and OPC. The 2nd stage expansion which includes a railway siding at Kondapalli will be commissioned shortly.
After Prefab demand picked up, the capacity of the boards factory needed further expansion. Hence, one more Bison Panel factory with higher capacity was set up at Poanta Sahib in Himachal Pradesh. This factory is able to take care of Northern Indian market with considerable saving in transport.
The Prefab Division also picked up its activity and registered considerable turnover on account of bulk orders received from across the country. The versatility of NCL Prefab is now known country wide. This has kept NCL Prefab in Number One position in our country.

These two projects are regularly contributing annual returns of about Rs.10 crores to the Company’s gross savings.
NCL is in continuous search for further diversification with latest technologies in the areas of building materials and construction technologies.
