Holcim to acquire ready-mixed concrete assets from Ol-Trans in northern Poland
19.07.2022 / 07:01

  • Major player in the ready-mixed concrete market in Northern Poland with a net turnover of CHF 27 million in 2022

  • Expands Holcim’s ready-mixed concrete portfolio in the tri-urban conurbation of Gdansk-Sopot-Gdynia

  • Acquisition to advance Holcim’s goal of 25% of ready-mix concrete sales from ECOPact

Holcim has signed an agreement with Ol-Trans, the ready-mixed concrete leader in the Gdansk-Sopot-Gdynia region, to acquire its five concrete plants. With an estimated net turnover of CHF 27 million in 2022, the transaction will strengthen Holcim’s local ready-mixed concrete network and firmly establish it as the leader in northern Poland. This transaction will also increase Holcim’s sales of ECOPact green concrete, which has an up to 50% lower carbon footprint in Poland. Customers will also benefit from greater access to sustainable solutions like Agila Fibro, a self-consolidating concrete that reduces the use of steel reinforcement by 40-50%.

Miljan Gutovic, Head of Europe Middle East Africa Region: “With this acquisition, we will further expand the footprint of ECOPact green concrete, the first and most comprehensive range of sustainable concrete in Poland.. Ol-Trans is a long-standing Holcim partner and a growing and very successful business. I welcome Ol-Trans employees to the Holcim family and look forward to ushering in our next era of growth together.

Ol-Trans was founded in 1990. Besides the production and sale of concrete, the company also supported road construction, demolition and logistics services. The acquisition is in line with Holcim’s goal to drive profitable growth with innovative building solutions, from eco-friendly ECOPact concrete to energy-efficient roofing systems. The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2022.
