Holcim Ltd. Company Profile
What do you use to build a modern colossus? Cement, of course. Holcim is one of the world's largest cement makers (along with CEMEX and Lafarge) with an annual production capacity of more than 215 million tons. The company operates in some 70 countries around the world; its international subsidiaries include Holcim (US), St. Lawrence Cement in Canada, Aggregate Industries in the UK, Holcim (Australia), and Holcim Apasco in Mexico. Although geographically diverse, Holcim sticks to the basics when it comes to products: cement, clinker, concrete, aggregates, and lime. It also offers research, import/export trading, consulting, and management services for the construction industry. It's merging with rival Lafarge.
