Ohorongo Cement Plant at Night
Ohorongo Cement Plant at Night

Ohorongo’s limestone deposits yield sufficient raw material to produce in excess of 1 million tons of cement per annum for the next 300 years. One of our overall goals is to create today what will have long-term benefits for future generations. In order to achieve this, and not to be distracted by short-term targets, we align our decisions and actions with a set of key values that are applicable to all members of the Ohorongo family.

In it for the long haul, together

For Ohorongo to succeed, it is essential that we build and maintain solid relationships of mutual trust with staff, customers, suppliers and stakeholders alike. Ohorongo actively nurtures strong partnerships based on reciprocal confidence and fair, ethical and honest conduct, with the common goal of shared long-term prosperity, rather than short-term individual gain.


Throughout the start-up process, Ohorongo has adopted a stance of absolute adherence to the highest standards of corporate integrity, transparency and due process. The company intends maintaining this record and will not tolerate any unlawful action or unethical behavior from any of its employees or stakeholders.

Producing for the next generation

Ohorongo’s achievements to date are a direct result of the mother company, Schwenk’s dedication to technological advancements, and the adoption of best business principles and practices. In the interest of the quality of our product, the protection of the Namibian environment and the well-being and safety of our people, we intend to follow suit and strive for excellence by staying abreast of technological advancements, and learning from internationally adopted best practices, while heeding the lessons of the past.

Each of Ohorongo's business decisions is taken in consideration of its long-term impact on the environment and the socio-economic situation of the people living in the area. We are proud to have invested in the best technology available on the market, in order to ameliorate impacts on the surroundings. Ohorongo will not compromise the pride that future generations may have for what is created in the present through any short-sighted choices in the service of immediate gain.
