The aggregate quarries in the Vicat Group
In its aggregate business, the Group seeks to provide a global response to the construction needs of its clients while securing the security of resources necessary for the manufacturing and development of ready-mix concrete.
The growth of this business depends upon acquisitions and investments designed to increase the capacity of existing quarry facilities as well as to open new ones.
Investments in this sector take the following criteria into account :
- Proximity of end-user markets and concrete plants of the Group;
- Presence of major geological land reserves (more than 30 years);
- Profitability in this industry
This development framework has already been implemented successfully in France, Switzerland, Turkey, India and Senegal.
