Published: 18 July 2013


Spain’s Cementos Lemona has initiated exporting cement to the UK. The first shipment of 13,000t of cement will be delivered to Southern Cement, also owned by Lemona’s parent company, CRH.

As part of an asset swap undertaken earlier this year, Cementos Portland Valderrivas (CPV) transferred its 99 per cent stake in Cementos Lemona SA to CRH. In addition to the Cementos Lemona assets, which has cement, ready-mix and aggregates operations in Bilbao, Spain, the deal included CPV’s Southern Cement which operates the cement import terminal based in Ipswich, UK.
