In 2001, Heidelberg Materials began its market entry with acquisition of the Cesla cement plant. Close to St. Petersburg in the Leningrad region, the Cesla plant has a production capacity of around 1 million tonnes. Later Heidelberg Materials acquired its second cement plant in the city of Sterlitamak in the Republic of Bashkortostan, with a capacity of 1.8 million tonnes. The new Novogurovsky plant, located around 150 km south of Moscow in the Tula region, was built by Heidelberg Materials and has an annual cement production capacity of 2 million tonnes. The plant is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and was launched in July 2011. 

Total annual production capacity of HeidelbergCement Russia is 4.6 million tonnes of high-quality cement in Russia. Moreover, it owns cement terminals in Kaliningrad and Murmansk.

In addition to the cement business, Heidelberg Materials operates one aggregates production in the Tula region. The national management activities, such as Finance, Sales, HR, Communication and Purchasing are handled mainly by our offices in the cities of Moscow and Podolsk (Moscow region).

The plant in Sterlitamak provides Heidelberg Materials with an excellent platform for the dynamic development of cement demand in the Republic of Bashkortostan.
