The Yemen Cement Silos (YCS) was established in 1975 after 10 years of trading in bagged cement. It is owned 100% by El-Aghil Group.

The project was erected in "Al-Saleef" port, which is about 75 miles north to "Hodeidah" port along the coastline of Red Sea. the reason for this location was the draft of the place. the draft can take vessels of 25,000 MT to 30,000 MT.

We started operation in 1975 and at that time Yemen was undergoing its construction of infrastructure. construction business was booming. YCS was the only importer of Cement to Yemen and we were importing around 600,000 MT per year. This was more than the nominal capacity of the project. still there was unmet demand.
