Case study

Investing in the future of our lime business

Acquisition has been one of the cornerstones of Sibelco’s growth strategy, and in 2015 we added a number of niche businesses to strengthen our position in various markets.

The integration of El Volcán, a South American lime producer, not only allowed us to significantly increase our sales volumes across the Southern Cone region, the quality and configuration of El Volcán’s mine allowed Sibelco to concentrate its mining activities, enlarging the scale of the operation and enabling better allocation of investment. Read more about El Volcán.
