CEMENTIS DRIVERS

Colin Taylor – Chairman of CEMENTIS

 

As Chairman of the new CEMENTIS Group, I am very pleased to announce that we have signed the Sale and Purchase Agreement with Holcim Ltd. for the acquisition of their cement businesses in Mauritius, Reunion, Madagascar, Mayotte, Seychelles and Comoros. We are now in the process of undertaking regulatory filings and fulfilling various conditions precedent and we expect to take full ownership of the businesses before the 4th quarter of 2021.

CEMENTIS positions itself to be the leading regional cement producer and distributor. The businesses that are being acquired are uniquely positioned and have a solid financial track record. We intend to build on these assets and develop further the range of products and services that they currently offer.  

The businesses have highly experienced management teams which are supported by a skilled and motivated workforce. We look forward to working closely with them to build a resilient and dynamic Group.

I am delighted that Chris Harker has joined us as the CEMENTIS Group CEO. Chris brings with him over 20 years’ experience in the cement industry with Blue Circle and Italcementi, coupled with building materials sector responsibilities at several leading investment banks. 

Cement is a vital product for the development of our communities, and we are committed to ensure a reliable supply of the right product at a competitive price in a sustainable manner.
