HeidelbergCement has been active in Israel since the acquisition of Hanson in August 2007. Our subsidiary Hanson Israel produces aggregates, asphalt, and ready-mixed concrete. The success of Hanson Israel is based on the deep-rooted values of the company, adhering to safety and regulations without compromise, and a resolute commitment to progress and technological development.
In 2016, economic growth was 3.2%, while the forecast for 2017 is expected to be slower at 2.5%. New residential construction declined slightly, but remained at a high level. Overall, a 3.4% growth is expected for the construction sector in 2016. Looking ahead to the coming year, the market is expected to be robust, with continued growth in residential and infrastructure spending.
In 2016, a considerable increase in aggregates sales volumes from an already high level was achieved in Israel. The asphalt operating line in Israel achieved a very high increase in sales volumes of 21.6% to 0.5 million tonnes (previous year: 0.4).
