Lafarge’s sales in Romania rose 15.4 per cent on the year in the first quarter of 2006, the company said on May 3, 2006. 

The sales increase in the first quarter of 2006 was due to a 13.8 per cent rise in delivery of construction materials, price hikes and a number of changes on the specialised Romanian market whose cumulative contribution to the group’s sales increase was of 1.6 per cent. 

Cement consumption in Romania grew 10 per cent in 2005 compared to 2004 and the average price per tonne reached Euro 60 to 65, up from Euro 50 to 52 in 2004.
