Members of Titan Cement International SA’s management team have presented the company’s strategic directions and growth targets set for 2026, that aim to shape the future of the group and drive long-term stakeholders’ value.

Based on a performance-driven local operating model and supported by fast-paced execution, the company sets its strategic priorities for capturing green growth during the period 2023-26. Strengthen the portfolio by growing our US and Europe attractive positions: we will focus on improving the efficiency of our supply chains, sales coverage and on strengthening the value chain integration in concrete and aggregates in all markets. 

Accelerate the time to market of new green products and cementitious solutions: we will develop synergies and capabilities to achieve a leading position in new materials and green products, investing in sourcing and trading activities in low-carbon blended cements, and supplementary cementitious materials. 

“Apply Digital and New Technologies: we aim to remain pioneers in the digitalisation of the manufacturing process but simultaneously extend our capabilities in developing a next-generation operating model to optimise customer experience, resource efficiency and productivity. Through an ecosystem of constant innovation, we will further harness the power that new industrial technologies can offer,” said a Titan Cement statement.
