North America

The United States of America and Canada form the North America Group area. In its largest market area, HeidelbergCement is one of the leading manufacturers of cement, aggregates, and ready-mixed concrete. Asphalt is additionally manufactured in a few US states, and concrete pipes are produced and distributed in Canada.

With the acquisition of Italcementi’s North American subsidiary Essroc in July 2016, we have considerably expanded our footprint in the Northeast and Midwest of the USA, as well as in the eastern part of Canada. We have added five cement plants (including a joint venture), three ­aggregates operations, two ground-granulated blast furnace slag (GGBS) grinding plants, and 30 ready-mixed concrete production sites (including a joint venture).
