Our subsidiaries:

HeidelbergCement acquired its subsidiaries in Sweden in 1999. We are the country’s market leader in cement, and a major player in concrete. Our Swedish companies produce cement, ready-mixed concrete, aggregates, and concrete products.

Our subsidiary Cementa is the only cement producer in Sweden with plants in Slite and Degerhamn – islands off the southeast coast – and in Skövde, in southern Sweden. Our companies for ready-mixed concrete, prefabricated concrete, and aggregates have leading market positions in Sweden. While our aggregates and prefabricated concrete plants are mainly located in southern Sweden, our network of ready-mixed concrete plants stretches into the north of the country.

We strive for energy efficiency in all of our activities and we substitute virgin raw materials with recycled and alternative materials whenever possible. At our largest cement plant in Slite, alternative fuels now represent 60% of energy consumed. The target for 2016 is 75%. Biomass makes up a significant share of these alternative fuels.
