Western and Southern Europe

Following the acquisition of Italcementi, the Western and Southern Europe Group area consists of seven countries. This includes the addition of France and Italy, two extremely strong market regions. As a fully integrated building materials company, we primarily manufacture cement, aggregates, and ready-mixed concrete in all these mature markets, as well as various building products in some countries and asphalt in the United Kingdom. In most countries, we are the market leader in the cement business. We also have a dense network of production facilities for ready-mixed concrete and quarries for the mining of aggregates.
