Acquisition of six quarries strengthens Holcim’s footprint in dynamic Rhônes-Alpes region

HOLCIM have acquired six quarries from the FAMY Group, a major independent player in the aggregates business in eastern France.

The quarries are ideally located to serve the dynamic metropolitan areas of Dijon, Lyon, and Geneva (Switzerland).

Accelerating Holcim’s expansion in the growing Rhône-Alpes region, the acquisition adds to the aggregate and ready-mixed concrete facilities acquired by the company in 2021.

Miljan Gutovic, region head for EMEA, said: ‘This acquisition expands our footprint in the highly attractive Rhône-Alpes region, confirming our ambition to revitalize key urban areas from Lyon to Geneva.

He added that the expansion is in line with Holcim’s strategy to accelerate green growth and play their part in Europe’s net-zero transition.

‘Our combined businesses and improved market access will provide an excellent platform to further strengthen our range of sustainable building solutions, such as ECOPact green concrete,’ he said.

‘I warmly welcome all FAMY Group employees into the Holcim family and look forward to unleashing our next era of growth together.’
