Our Story

The name “Berenta Cement” was derived from the town of “Shebel Berenta” in northwest Ethiopia where the cement factory will be established. Shebel Berenta is also the birthplace of Belay Zeleke, a celebrated Ethiopian military commander who led the Arbegnoch (Patriotic) resistance movement in Gojam against the Fascist Italian invasion and occupation of Ethiopia from 1936 to 1941.
