Since the 1990s, we have grown our businesses and our market leadership positions steadily, beginning with the acquisition of Beton Catalan in Spain in 1987. We now have operations in nine countries in Western Europe – Ireland, UK, France, Germany, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark and Switzerland – with leadership positions in cement, lime, precast concrete, readymixed concrete and aggregates.

With a major global acquisition in 2015, we significantly increased our cement volumes and further strengthened our readymixed concrete, asphalt, lime and aggregates positions in important European markets, including the UK market through the addition of the leading building materials business Tarmac.
