Helping you build the world

Ever since the construction of the Portland Eldorado cement plant in the town of Apiaí in the state of Sao Paulo, Brazil, in 1968, InterCement has been on the road to growth and success, investing heavily in new plants, acquisitions and increased capacity.

A Brazilian private equity company controlled by Camargo Corrêa S. A., InterCement is the market leader in cement in Portugal, Argentina, Mozambique and Cape Verde, ranking second in the Brazilian and Paraguayan markets, and having significant operations in South Africa and Egypt.

The history of InterCement has been marked by the successful integration of acquisitions and continual implementation of new assets, always of similar size and superior to its own previous dimensions. The main examples of this competence were the mergers of Cimento Cauê, in Brazil, in 1997, Loma Negra, in Argentina, in 2005, and the most recent acquisition, in 2012, of the cement plant Cimpor. 

Markets

It is the market leader in cement in Portugal, Argentina, Mozambique and Cape Verde, ranking second in the Brazilian and Paraguayan markets, and having significant operations in South Africa and Egypt. It has a portfolio of assets located primarily in developing countries and more than 9,000 professionals.

In Brazil, InterCement has a 20% market share and 16 production units. In Argentina, with the Loma Negra brand, it has nearly 50% of the market and nine factories. In Portugal, it is the market leader with a market share greater than 50% and 5 production units. In Egypt, InterCement's biggest plant is in Alexandria. In Cape Verde, it dominates the market with an 80% share. In South Africa, with the NPC brand, InterCement mainly serves the Durban region, and it has a market share of more than 10%. Finally, in Mozambique, it is the market leader with a share of more than 70% and a national presence.

Cement, Concrete and aggregates

InterCement has one of the largest cement production complexes in South America with 40 production units. The company sells cement, lime and special mortars – products that are recognized for their quality and that have high levels of reliability. The cement produced by InterCement follows strict requirements of various national and international bodies.

It has more than 130 plants distributed across eight countries and a research and development area that is in tune with the most advanced technology for construction products.

InterCement is prepared to meet all stages of the work and has the ideal concrete for every need and the company currently has nearly 30 gravel quarries in strategic regions.

InterCement enjoys a significant competitive advantage in Argentina in the form of Cofesur S.A., which holds an 80% share in Ferrosur Roca S.A (Ferrosur), a 3,181 kilometer long railroad operating in the central region of the country.

The railroad connects seven of the nine Loma Negra plants and the Argentinian cement producer to the major consumer centers. The railroad also carries chemical products, fuels, and raw materials and other goods for other customers, mainly those involved in the construction sector.

The processes added with the acquisition of Cimpor also include the production of mortar, which is among the main products that have complemented the production portfolio. There are two units in Brazil and two in Portugal working in the production of goods.
