Heidelbergcement and Italcementi to create the second global player in the cement sector, leader in the aggregates business and the third in ready-mixed concrete

Italmobiliare and HeidelbergCement, following the agreement regarding the sale to HeidelbergCement of Italmobiliare’s 45% stake held in Italcementi, have decided to play an active role in the ongoing consolidation of the construction materials industry by creating the second global player in the cement sector, leader in the aggregates business and the third in ready-mixed concrete. The rationale of this combination is further supported by a perfect geographical fit with HeidelbergCement’s existing footprint - with limited overlap of plants in Belgium and the US – by the significant potential for synergies and the combination of strong Innovation and R&D capabilities of both companies. The combined group will have a production capacity of about 200 million tons of cement, 275 million tons of aggregates sales and 49 million m3 of ready-mix concrete sales with pro-forma 2014 revenues of about €16.8 billion, generated in more than 60 countries worldwide.

Board of Directors examines consolidated results at June 30, 2015
After growth in the second quarter compared with the year-earlier period (thanks to healthy performance on the North American and Asian markets), the first half of 2015 reported cement sales substantially in line with the first half of 2014. Supported by sales in Morocco and Egypt, ready mixed concrete sales volumes were slightly up on the first half of 2014, while aggregates made stronger progress. The trend in prices, which had an overall negative impact on revenue in the second quarter and the first half, was affected above all by the fall in Egypt, due to excess supply, and by the negative trend on the European markets, whereas sales price trends were positive in North America, India and Morocco.

At  the end of April 2015, the last panel of Palazzo Italia has been laid thanks to the commitment of hundreds people, concluding in this way the construction of the iconic heart of the Italian Pavilion at Expo 2015. Italcementi has provided two thousand tons of biodynamic cement  to build 750 panels, both flat and curved, all with a different design. Each panel - sized about 4x4,2 meters - was assembled to create the outer surface texture, which recalls the shapes of a “petrified forest”, for more than 9 thousand square meters.

Italcementi and architecture: white concrete for the new venue of Fondazione Prada

The new Milan venue of Fondazione Prada conceived by architecture firm OMA—led by Rem Koolhaas—consists in the redevelopment of an early 20th-century distillery. Striking bright architectural elements are made of a special white concrete by Italcementi.
Characterized by an articulated architectural configuration which combines seven existing buildings with three new structures (Podium, Cinema and Torre), the project is the result of two coexisting conditions: preservation of the old and creation of a new architecture which, although separate, confront each other in a state of permanent interaction.

arcVision no. 31 – DIGITAL

arcVision no. 31 is a reflection on the effects of the Digital Revolution in the life of third-millennium man. Is man the winner or the loser? Is technological innovation an extraordinary driver of economic and social growth or a force alienating and depersonalizing the individual? We are witnesses of a transformation in the concept of work and enterprise that requires us to rethink our production and organizational models.
