Many years ago, Mzee Paunrana saw an opportunity to help coffee farmers increase yields with a fertilizer made of a naturally occurring mineral compound of calcium and magnesium. What he saw led to the creation of Athi River Mining Ltd (ARM), in 1974.


The company’s first product was called ‘Dolmax Agricultural Lime,’ and it was manufactured in a mill with the modest capacity of 500 kgs per hour. It wasn’t long before ARM was processing a range of industrial minerals for use in the manufacture of paint, rubber, glass, ceramics, plastics, soaps and detergents and cement.


As the demand grew so did the need for bigger and more sophisticated grinding technology. The two new grinding mills at the Company’s cement and clinker plant at Tanga now each produce 150 tones per hour. Through many changes, the Founder’s vision holds true today: Add value through processing and enhance the lives of all stakeholders.
