Link to local website: HeidelbergCement in Benelux
HeidelbergCement has been active in Benelux (Beglium and the Netherlands) since 1993. In the cement, ready-mixed concrete, and aggregates sectors, we have leading market positions in the Benelux.
Nearly 75% of the cement produced in Benelux is blended cement, i.e. with a low clinker content. Moreover, the use of alternative fuels is very well integrated in the production process: more than 85% of fuel needs are covered by alternative fuels in Dutch kilns and more than 50% in the Belgian ones. In January 2014, our Belgian subsidiary CBR took over a cement plant in the Ghent harbour area. Our Benelux cement plants have now a total capacity of 4.2 million tonnes.
Ready-mixed concrete facilities are spread throughout the Benelux region, thus providing a dense supply network to the construction market.
Aggregates facilities are mainly located in the south of Belgium and the coastal areas of Benelux. Their product range includes porphyry, limestone, and marine aggregates. In January 2014, we purchased the Cimescaut Group – located near the French border – which has substantial limestone deposits and broadens our possibilities within the French market.
