Since 1996, from a medium-sized Italian player, "single-country and single-product", Cementir Holding has become a multinational company with a global presence and a diversified business portfolio of white and grey cement, concrete and aggregates.
Our international growth path
Since 1996 we have increased EBITDA about twenty times without any capital increase. All our growth was supported by the operating cash flow. We have successfully diversified our portfolio both geographically and by product, adding to our core business of cement an important presence in aggregates and concrete. We also invested in green technologies and renewable resources, creating an active business in the waste business, serving the energy needs of our cement plants
We have become a global player through investments and acquisitions of over 1.7 billion euros. In recent years we have significantly strengthened our business portfolio, acquiring CCB in Belgium in 2016, selling manufacturing activities in Italy in 2018 and then acquiring the majority of LWCC in the United States, the richest and most promising white cement market in the world.
Our competitive position has come out stronger, thanks also to our leading positions in Denmark and Belgium, where we are first and third respectively in cement and concrete production, and in Turkey, where we are among the main international cement producers.
