HeidelbergCement has come a long way from the foundation of the first cement plant in Heidelberg in 1873 to one of the leading international building materials group it is today. The company was active in the South German region exclusively until the end of the 1960s. First steps into the international arena followed with the participation in the French cement company Vicat and the acquisition of Lehigh Cement in the USA in 1977. At the end of the 1980s, the political changes in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe offered new opportunities, and HeidelbergCement became the largest investor in the building materials industry of the region. In the 1990s, the international expansion accelerated. The acquisition of the leading Belgian and Scandinavian cement producers CBR and Scancem opened up new markets in Western and Northern Europe, as well as in Africa and Asia. The entrance into Indonesia followed in 2001 and again created a significant increase in capacity. Our objective ”Priority for growing markets“ was the driving force behind our engagements in China, India, Kazakhstan, Georgia, the Ukraine and Russia over the last several years.
