Acquisition of low-carbon calcium carbonate leader in northern Italy advances company’s green formulation
HOLCIM have acquired Nicem srl, a leader in ground calcium carbonate based near Bergamo in Northern Italy, whose broad customer base spans industries from construction to plastic, rubber, and paints.
With this acquisition, Nicem’s low-emission raw materials will accelerate the green formulation of Holcim’s sustainable building solutions, from ECOPact to ECOPlanet.
Miljan Gutovic, Holcim region head for Europe, said: ‘Nicem complement our existing operations perfectly and allow us to further leverage our expertise in green formulation, opening a new source of alternative materials to decarbonize our ready-mixed concrete.
‘I look forward to welcoming the employees of Nicem, whose valuable expertise will help us accelerate green growth, to the Holcim family.’
The acquisition of Nicem will advance Holcim’s ‘Strategy 2025 – Accelerating Green Growth’ by further fuelling growth with bolt-ons in their aggregates and ready-mixed concrete businesses.
