HeidelbergCement’s Gorazdze group completes PLN 500m upgrade & extension


2011-07-06



Grupa Gorazdze, the cement and concrete maker owned by HeidelbergCement of Germany, on 5 July inaugurated a new, PLN 500m (approx. €125m) production line at its factory in Opolskie. The investment lifts total production capacity at the plant to more than 5 million tons annually, making it the largest factory of cement in Europe. It will create new jobs mainly in extraction activities.

Bernd Scheifele, CEO of HeidelbergCement, said the project represented a giant step forward not just for Gorazdze but for HeidelbergCement’s operations in Europe.

He noted that over the 17 years since its acquisition by HeidelbergCement the Gorazdze complex has become “the Mercedes of the cement industry”, thanks to investments worth an estimated PLN 1.8bn (€456m).

In 2010 Grupa Gorazdze generated revenues of PLN 1.3bn (€329m). It employs 1,300 people.
