Slovakia’s largest cement producer Holcim laid out its investment plans on Friday to Prime Minister Iveta Radicova.
The company, based on Rohoznik in the Zahorie region west of Bratisalva, projects to spend around EUR 50 million in the next 3 years, with about EUR 11 million earmarked for investments this year.
One of the plans that was of particular interest to the Prime Minister was how cement could be used in the construction of motorways instead of asphalt, as this could generate huge savings in the country’s struggling motorway construction budget.
Holcim is a global company employing around 80,000 people in 70 countries in every continent, with half of the production in Slovakia exported. The company’s core areas of business include the manufacture and distribution of cement, and the production, processing and distribution of aggregates (crushed stone, gravel and sand), ready-mix concrete and asphalt.
