HeidelbergCement was founded 1873 in Heidelberg, Germany. Until the 1960s HeidelbergCement was active almost exclusively in its home market of southern Germany. Today, the company employs around 4,000 people throughout Germany. With roughly 59,000 employees at around 3,000 locations in more than 60 countries, HeidelbergCement Group is among the leading global producers of building materials. The company headquarters are located in Heidelberg.

HeidelbergCement is the largest supplier in Germany’s cement market, operating a total of eight cement and three grinding plants. Most of the German production sites are located in the southern and north-western parts of the country. In the aggregates business line, the company maintains an expansive network of sand, gravel, and hard stone mining operations at?36 locations in Germany. A total of 221 plants produce and supply ready-mixed concrete nationwide. The concrete business line also produces paving stones and building blocks as well as precast concrete elements.

A few years ago, we began implementing a demanding investment programme for our cement plants in Germany. The focus is on measures to modernise and increase efficiency as well as environmental protection. The comprehensive conversion and modernisation of the Lengfurt plant was completed at the beginning of 2016. The Burglengenfeld plant followed in 2018: the heart of the plant modernisation is the new heat exchanger furnace, which now replaces the two previously existing furnaces from the 1970s. A new, modern heat exchanger furnace was also built at the Schelklingen plant, which will go into operation in 2019.
