In 2001, CVC Funds invested in Cementbouw Handel & Industrie. Operating today under the name of Cementbouw BV, the company is a leading producer and distributor of cement, aggregates, binding agents and sand/gravel in the Netherlands.
The company’s binding agents and logistics division is a major player in the Dutch cement trading market, and is also one of the leading suppliers of fly-ash in the Netherlands. The Ready Mix division operates a network of 24 plants which produce ready-mixed concrete, primarily in the more densely populated western regions of the Netherlands. This division is also active in the trading and transport of aggregates.
In July 2003, CVC Funds completed the sale of three of the five divisions of Cementbouw Handel & Industrie Holdings BV to Cement Roadstone Holdings, retaining a joint-investment in two of the materials divisions, both of which have leading positions in their respective markets.
