The first production line was put into operation in 1969 with a 230.000 tons/year clinker production capacity and 250.000 tons/year cement grinding capacity. In 1976, by putting into operation the second production line, the clinker production capacity was increased to 480.000 tons/year and cement grinding capacity was 520.000 tons/year. With the addition of the third cement mill, the cement grinding capacity was reached to 1.000.000 tons/year. In 1989, it was decided to increase of the clinker production by evaluating increasing demand, precalcination of the second production line was made and as a result clinker production capacity was reached 840.000 tons/year.

In 1992 by the modernization which was made in cement mills, cement grinding capacity was increased 1.200.000 tons/year and by the Roller Pres Unit which was taken into operation in 1993, total cement grinding capacity of Bursa Cement Factory was increased 1.750.000 tons/year. In 1996, precalcination of the first line was made and clinker production capacity was increased to 1.350.000 tons/year and cement grinding capacity was reached 1.850.000 tons/year. Investments for the fourth cement mill with a capacity 175 t/h and a cement silo with 10.000 tons capacity were completed by 25th May 1999.

Today, 1.400.000 tons clinker production capacity and 2.850.000 tons cement grinding capacity and 31.000 tons cement stock capacity are available.

The Bursa Cement Factory operates in the Marmara region which is the most developed region of Turkey.

In order to use the fly ash which is obtained from the electrostatic precipitator of coal burning power plants as an additive to cement in compliance with the standards, fly ash stock silo and transport system were put into operation by Bursa Cement Factory.

First system was installed in October 2001; 800 m³ silo capacity and 50 tons per hour capacity for feeding the second and third cements mills. The other system was installed 1.500 m³ silo capacity and 80 tons per hour capacity for feeding the fourth cement mill.

In order to supply fly ash which is used as an additive in the cement and concrete from the electrostatic precipitator, ARES and Tunckul Fly Ash Plants were joined to the Bursa Cement Company.

In order to meet cement demand in Kutahya region locally, “Kutahya Cement Mixing and Packing Plant” was taken into operation in Kutahya with a capacity of 80 tons per hour and with IBAU Mixing technology in November 2005.

In Kutahya Cement Mixing and Packing Plant, the cement which is produced in Bursa Cement Factory and fly ash that is obtained from thermal power plants (Seyitomer, Tuncbilek, Orhaneli) are mixed together for producing blended cement.
