Due to the heavy weight of cement and aggregates compared with their price, production is usually located in close proximity to the sales markets. The cement transportation radius by road normally does not exceed 200 km. The delivery radius for aggregates and ready-mixed concrete by road is less than 100 km. Consequently, we have local production sites in the more than 40 countries in which we offer building materials. We currently operate 87 cement plants (plus 15 as part of joint ventures), more than 600 quarries and aggregate pits, and well over 1,000 ready-mixed concrete production sites worldwide.
