Africa-Eastern Mediterranean Basin

The recently added countries of Italcementi have expanded the Africa-Eastern Mediterranean Basin Group area to include 15 countries. We are one of the market leaders in Egypt and Morocco in particular. HeidelbergCement mainly manufactures cement in the African countries south of the Sahara – and in most of them we are the market leader. Based on the good growth prospects, we have significantly expanded our production capacities in several countries over the last few years. In 2016, HeidelbergCement also entered the market in Mozambique.

In the Eastern Mediterranean Basin, the joint venture Akçansa is one of Turkey’s leading cement manufacturers. It also has a dense network of ready-mixed concrete plants and manufactures aggregates. In Israel, we produce ready-mixed concrete, aggregates, and asphalt.
