Western and Southern Europe

HeidelbergCement operates production sites in seven countries in the Western and Southern Europe Group area. In these mature markets, we manufacture cement, aggregates, ready-mixed concrete, asphalt, and various building products as a fully integrated building materials company. We are among the market leaders in the cement business in almost all of these countries. We also maintain a dense network of quarries for aggregates and production facilities for ready-mixed concrete. The United Kingdom, France, and Germany are the three largest market regions in Western and Southern Europe.

With the first-time consolidation of Italcementi from 1 July 2016, the Western and Southern ­Europe Group area was extended to include France and Italy and our market position in Spain was ­expanded. In all three countries, the added activities include cement and ready-mixed concrete, as well as aggregates in France in particular.
