As part of a realignment of its Greek business, HeidelbergCement has signed an agreement to sell its aggregates business in Mandra and two ready-mixed concrete plants in Gerakas and Aspropyrgos to the Swiss LafargeHolcim group. The parties agreed not to disclose the sale price.
The company will focus on its core business in Greece and continue the cement production through its subsidiary Halyps Cement.
'We are pleased with the successful signing of the transaction in Greece,' said Dr. Dominik von Achten, Chairman of the Managing Board of HeidelbergCement. 'After the divestment of the Kuwait business, the realignment in Greece is the next step in our portfolio optimisation as part of our Beyond 2020 strategy.'
