CRH seeks collaboration with EBRD in the Ukraine

In June this year, CRH reached an agreement with Buzzi Unicem to take over the Ukrainian assets of Buzzi’s subsidiary Dyckerhoff Cement. These include the integrated cement plants Rivne and Mykolaiv (photo), distribution terminals and RMX plants. CRH and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) are now negotiating financial options to collaborate on the investment. With the Buzzi assets and its own 3 cement plants in the Ukraine, CRH will become the largest producer and achieve a ‘pole-position’ for the reconstruction of the Ukraine.
