The Mannersdorf cement plant in Austria, which has been put up for sale by Lafarge ahead of its proposed merger with Holcim, has drawn interest from three notable parties, the daily WirtschaftsBlatt reports.

The three potential investors are Leube, Kirchdorfer group and Mexico's Cemex, with the Mexican cement major standing the biggest chances of success, the paper claims.

The Mannersdorf plant in Lower Austria has a capacity of 1.3Mta and is the country's largest cement works. It forms part of a package of assets that Lafarge and Holcim have proposed to sell to as they seek regulatory approval for their merger.
