North America

The USA and Canada form the North America Group area. In our largest market area, we are one of the leading manufacturers of aggregates, cement, and ready-mixed concrete. Asphalt is also manufactured in a few US states, and concrete pipes are produced in Western Canada. With the acquisition of Italcementi, our activities have expanded considerably in the northeastern USA in particular and have extended into the Canadian province of Quebec through a joint venture. HeidelbergCement has production sites across the continent with a focus on the eastern half of the USA, Texas, the Gulf Coast, the Pacific Coast, as well as Western Canada and Quebec.
