CEMEX acquires Kiesel
29 September 2023

CEMEX has agreed to acquire Kiesel, a mortars and adhesives technological leader in the construction industry based in Germany, as part of its ongoing strategy to strengthen CEMEX’s Urbanization Solution business through bolt-on acquisitions.

“We remain committed to increasing our capacity to serve growing urban markets with more sustainable and innovative solutions,” said Sergio Menéndez, president of CEMEX Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia. “This acquisition will enhance our Urbanization Solutions business and allow us to serve our customers better.” 

Kiesel is a trusted provider of building solutions with over 60 years of experience that serves the German, French, Polish, and Czech markets. Kiesel’s product portfolio includes a range of solutions to ensure efficient installation of all types of floors or wall coverings, as well as mortars for the installation of ceramic and natural stone tiles.

Mortars are building materials that use cement to bond bricks and concrete blocks and to install different materials, such as tile and ceramic. They are vital for many construction projects, especially for renovating buildings and enhancing the energy efficiency of the built environment. CEMEX already provides a variety of mortars in its markets around the world as part of its Urbanization Solutions business.

The closing of this acquisition is subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, including consent from government agencies. CEMEX hopes to finalise the acquisition by the end of 2023.
