Product Range and Vertical Integration
HeidelbergCement offers a wide range of high quality products. Alongside classical building materials, we produce special building products for diverse applications. Our core activities include the production and distribution of cement and aggregates, the two essential raw materials for the manufacture of concrete.
Our product range is substantially complemented by downstream ready-mixed concrete and asphalt activities. Furthermore, HeidelbergCement offers services such as worldwide trading in cement and coal by sea.
This vertical integration strategy is one of our growth drivers. In future, we plan to further integrate our business activities in urban centres in particular.
Our core products cement and aggregates (sand, gravel, and crushed rock) are generally homogeneousbulk goods. Their product characteristics are standardised in order to ensure the required stability, reliability, and processability in the application.
