Cement manufacturers under further inquiry
Published: 02 June 2004

Cement manufacturers are still in the spotlight of the German competition authority (Bundeskartellamt). The Bundeskartellamt recently conducted a search following tip-offs from cement purchasers according to which some manufacturers continued to apply anti-competitive market allocation and price agreements. In addition, the aim of the search was to obtain information for the evaluation of the earlier appeals lodged by companies.
