With three integrated cement factories and two milling facilities, CIMPOR maintains its market leadership in Portugal and Cape Verde with a cement capacity of 9.1 million tons and continues to operate in foreign markets.
Having made a strong entrance to the African market with the investment in Ivory Coast, which was completed in 2020 and was the first facility to be built entirely for the production of calcified clay, and the Cameroon plant planned to be completed in early 2022, the Group will continue to make strategic decisions to become a global player, rather than a regional power, in 2021.
