The upgrade and development of the Georgian business of Heidelbergcement Caucasus will take place between 2016 and 2018. Heidelbergcement started business in Georgia in 2006. After ten years of continuous development of the business, the Georgian subsidiary Heidelbergcement Caucasus currently operates three integrated cement plants (Kaspi and Rustavi), a cement grinding facility in Poti and a cement terminal at the Black Sea coast. The cement production capacity exceeds 2 million tons of high quality cement annually.
The cement business is supported by a strong network of 12 ready-mixed concrete plants that produce more than 700.000m³ concrete per year. To note, sand and aggregates for the concrete is partly supplied by two own aggregate pits in Batumi and Tbilisi.
