SIAM Cement BigBloc Construction Technologies Pvt Ltd, a joint venture between Gujarat-based BigBloc Construction Ltd and Thailand’s SCG International Corporation Co., Ltd. (SCG International), has commenced commercial production at its ₹65 crore plant in Kheda, Gujarat. The plant, which boasts an annual capacity of 2.5 lakh cubic meters, was inaugurated in the presence of Pattarat Hongtong, the Ambassador of Thailand to India.

Naresh Saboo, Managing Director of BigBloc Construction Ltd, remarked, “Construction at the plant began in September 2023, and within a year, production started, setting a remarkable record in India’s autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) industry. Moving forward, SCG and BigBloc will collaborate on all building material solutions to strengthen the supply chain in India, leverage each other’s capabilities, and provide exceptional solutions to the construction industry.” He also noted the potential for the plant's expansion to 5 lakh cubic meters per year in the second phase, pending approval from both joint venture parties.

BigBloc Construction holds a 52 percent stake in the joint venture, while SCG International holds 48 percent. The Kheda plant will feature India’s first AAC Wall Plant, producing a wide range of large-format AAC wall products, measuring 8-12 feet in length, 2 feet in width, and 3-8 inches in thickness, for the Indian market. The facility is expected to generate 250 employment opportunities and, at full capacity, is projected to achieve annual revenues of around ₹100 crore.
