Heidelberg Materials has been present in Morocco since the second half of 2016, when it purchased the Italcementi Group. In Morocco we operate through Ciments du Maroc 3 cement plants in Aït Baha, Safi, and Marrakech, 2 grinding centers in Laâyoune and 1 in Jorf Lasfar, 5 quarries, and 23 concrete batching plants. Since the acquisition of Asmar in 1999, Ciments du Maroc (listed at the Casablanca Stock Exchange since 1969 and set up in 1992 through the merger of Cimasfi and Ciments d’Agadir) has been the second-largest cement manufacturer in Morocco and has become the first Moroccan concrete producer through controlled Bétomar.
At the beginning of 2011, the cement plant in Aït Baha has begun its operations. The annual production capacity is up to 2.2 million tonnes. Today, after the closure of the Anza plant in Agadir, the annual production capacity of Ciments du Maroc is about 3.1 million tonnes of clinker and 5.3 million tonnes of cement.
In 2011, the Group inaugurated a wind park in Laayoune, located in the area of the Indusaha grinding plant, in line with the aim of implementing levers to further reduce emissions of greenhouse gases, while developing new energy sources.
Ciments du Maroc has also strengthened its industrial network with the building of a grinding and shipping center of cement in Jorf Lasfar, located 15 kilometres south of the city of El Jadida and 5 kilometres from the port of Jorf Lasfar. The annual production capacity is 404,000 tonnes.
