Maple Leaf Cement is the third largest cement factory in Pakistan. It was set up in 1956 as a joint collaboration between the West Pakistan Industrial Development Corporation and the government of Canada. It is strategically located at Daudkhel (District Mianwali) in Northern Pakistan, which is an area rich in raw materials required for the production of cement.

Presently Kohinoor Textile Mills is the holding company for Maple Leaf cement.

A second plant of 4000 tpd was commissioned in 1998 and a third plant of 6700 tpd came into production in 2006. It increased the total capacity to 11,700 tpd. The capacity of White Cement has also increased from 100 tpd to 500tpd with the addition of a new plant. This plant also has provisions for doubling the capacity to 1000tpd.

The plants of 4000 tpd, 6700 tpd and of White Cement are state of the art and have been supplied by FLSmidth in Denmark.

In order to remain competitive in the market the management at Maple Leaf continuously re evaluates its business strategies. With the increase of furnace oil prices the company adopted coal as a more cost efficient and environmentally friendly fuel for kiln firing. Today the management believes that the future lies in exploring the possibilities of alternative and cheaper fuels such as waste firing. This would further reduce production costs whilst promoting a culture of environmental awareness, health and safety.
