News and Stories

  • 150 years of progress

    In 1873, Johann Philipp Schifferdecker started producing Portland cement – then a completely new building material – with just 35-employees in Heidelberg, Germany. He probably never imagined that 150 years later, Heidelberg Materials would be one of the world’s largest manufacturers of building materials. Read here how it happened.

  • Nice to see you

  • German Vice Chancellor Dr. Robert Habeck visits flagship CCS project in Brevik, Norway

    Dr Robert Habeck, Terje Aasland and Jan Christian Vestre highlighted the importance of CO₂ capture technologies for the industry during their visit to Heidelberg Materials' CCS project in Brevik.

Heidelberg Materials will invest EUR 1.5 billion in CCUS projects by 2030 to achieve net zero emissions.
  • A place to feel good

    The new Terminal 3 in the south of Frankfurt Airport is taking shape. The new departure hall is designed to combine functionality with aesthetics. The coloured exposed concrete elements in natural tones create a warm, lounge-like atmosphere. Around 320,000 cubic meters of concrete have already been used. The cement required for this was supplied by Heidelberg Materials.
