HeidelbergCement has been active in Bosnia and Herzegovina since 2000, when it acquired a majority stake in Tvornica cementa Kakanj, a cement plant in central Bosnia, and entered the ready-mixed concrete market. We have made significant investments into modernisation and environmental protection at the Kakanj plant, which now complies with all EU environmental standards.
Our Kakanj cement plant, situated 50 km from the capital Sarajevo, produces various types of high-grade cement. Five cement terminals located in Sarajevo, Banja Luka, Tešanj, Bihać and Brčko ensure our strong presence in major urban areas. The cement produced by the Kakanj plant has been essential for constructing some of the nation's most important infrastructure and architectural projects.
HeidelbergCement has continuously expanded its ready-mixed concrete capacities in Bosnia and Herzegovina, where seven plants are now in operation. All plants are located in key urban centres of Bosnia and Herzegovina, while one mobile plant and one plant in Mostar are currently engaged in the nation's largest infrastructure project, construction of the Corridor Vc motorway.
