The largest cement producer in Slovakia, Holcim (Slovensko), Rohoznik, earned a net profit of SKK 111 million last year. "The company’s profit decreased compared with the previous year, while the acquisition of three concrete ready-mix plants and merger with Holcim Beton a.s., were the most significant factors behind this drop," reported company representatives. Holcim’s turnover increased in Slovakia to SKK 3.4 billion last year. An investment of over SKK2 billion into the modernization of a kiln line influenced the financial economic result as well. Thanks to its reliable supplies, Holcim held on to its foreign consumers and boosted total exports. Lower Austria and western Hungary remain its traditional export destinations. Construction developments affected cement sales, increasing by over 50 percent in the Bratislava region. Holcim posted a 75 percent increase in concrete sales.
