Heidelberg Materials has been active in Bosnia and Herzegovina since 2000, when it acquired a majority stake in Heidelberg Materials Cement BiH (ex. Tvornica cementa Kakanj), a cement plant in central Bosnia, and entered the ready-mixed concrete market. We have made significant investments into modernisation and environmental protection at the Kakanj plant, which now complies with all EU environmental standards.
Our Kakanj cement plant, situated 50 km from the capital Sarajevo, produces various types of high-grade cement. Six cement terminals located in Sarajevo, Banja Luka, Tešanj, Bihać, Brčko and Mostar ensure our strong presence in major urban areas. The cement produced by the Kakanj plant has been essential for constructing some of the nation's most important infrastructure and architectural projects.
Heidelberg Materials has continuously expanded its ready-mixed concrete capacities in Bosnia and Herzegovina, where six plants are now in operation. All plants are located in key urban centres of Bosnia and Herzegovina, while plants in Zenica and Mostar are currently engaged in the nation's largest infrastructure project, construction of the Corridor Vc motorway.
