Modernising for the future

Published 08 October 2013

Next year marks the Italcementi Group’s 150th anniversary. Despite the current economic difficulties that are heavily impacting the construction materials sectors, particularly in industrialised countries, the global cement major remains committed to improving competitiveness, efficiency and environmental performance in its industrial network. During this milestone year  the modernisation of the Devnya works in Bulgaria is one of the company's key investments as it looks ahead to a long, sustainable future. By Italcementi, Italy.

A well-defined investment programme, together with a policy adopted to maintain a solid net financial position, has led Italcementi to identify a number of selected investment  projects aimed at strengthening the international group’s industrial footprint in line with its commitment to sustainable development.
Recent projects include revamps of the Martinsburg (USA) and Matera (Italy) plants, as well as a new line at the Yerraguntla works in India and the greenfield Ait Baha plant in Morocco.

Current industrial investments are now focussed on ongoing modernisation projects at Devnya (Bulgaria) and Rezzato (Italy), which will see the replacement of older, inefficient equipment with cutting-edge technology, including the most up-to-date process, safety and environmental control systems.
