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 by about twenty times without any capital increase. All our growth was supported by 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, such as 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. Between 2016 and 2018 we have significantly strengthened our business portfolio by: a) acquiring CCB in Belgium; b) selling all our manufacturing activities in Italy and c) acquiring control of Lehigh White Cement Company in the United States, the richest and most promising white cement market in the world.
Our competitive position has come out stronger, as we became one of the leading players in Belgian aggregates, we strengthened our vertical integration in cement, aggregates and concrete production in core Europe and we added a new business unit in the US, which now represents around 10% of our Group revenues.
