German group HeidelbergCement will start next year the construction of a new plant of cement, in which it might invest 300-330 million euros considering the current units work at full throttle.
In 2004, HeidelbergCement Holding came up through the merger of the three cement plants, HeidelbergCement being present in Romania through divisions Carpat Concrete and Carpat Aggregate.
For this year, Carpatcement Holding estimates a rise in business by some 4.6% up to 380 million euros, from 363 million euros last year, given the reaching of the maximal production capacity.
Besides the investments allotted in the expansion of production facilities, the company aims to build a new cement plant. „We have several areas where we are examining the possibility to locate the new plant, and by the end of the year we’ll decide whether the investments may be made,” said CEO of Carpatcement Holding, Mihai Rohan.
Rohan said the investment in the construction of a cement plant amounts to some 300-330 million euros.
