Lafarge SA has announced a reorganisation of its worldwide business, with the company’s country chief executives assuming responsibility for the firm’s cement, aggregates and concrete activities.

The change will take effect from January 2012 and will remove one layer of hierarchy at the regional level, the company said.

"This new organisation project will reinforce our efficiency. It will drive us to greater focus on our markets and customers’ needs, and accelerate the group’s development through organic growth and innovation," Lafarge CEO Bruno Lafont said in a statement.
