Holcim to acquire Polish ready-mix assets

Holcim

Acquisition set to advance target of 25% of ready-mix sales from ECOPact green concrete

HOLCIM have signed an agreement with Ol-Trans, leaders in ready-mixed concrete across the tri-city agglomeration of Gdansk-Sopot-Gdynia, to acquire their five concrete plants.

With 2022 estimated net sales of CHF27 million, the transaction will strengthen Holcim’s local ready-mixed concrete network and firmly establish the company as the leader in northern Poland.

The transaction will also increase Holcim’s sales of ECOPact green concrete – which comes with up to a 50% lower carbon footprint – in Poland.

Customers will also benefit from improved access to sustainable solutions such as Agila Fibro, a self-compacting concrete that reduces the use of steel reinforcement by 40–50%.

Miljan Gutovic, Holcim region head for Europe, Middle East, and Africa, said: ‘With this acquisition we will further expand the footprint of ECOPact green concrete, the first and most comprehensive sustainable concrete range in Poland.

‘Ol-Trans, who were founded in 1990, have been a longstanding Holcim partner as well as a growing and highly successful business. I offer a warm welcome to Ol-Trans employees into the Holcim family and look forward to unleashing our next era of growth together.’

The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2022.
