ZKG celebrates an anniversary. 111 years of ZKG Cement Lime Gypsum are a reason to celebrate. But before we get to the celebrations, I would like to thank you. Thank you for your loyalty, your encouragement and your critical dialog with us.

If a brand of Bauverlag, for which I am responsible, can successfully hold its own in the market for so long, then we must have done a lot right. The ZKG editorial team in particular can be proud of this. In any case, I can say that I am very proud of the ZKG team.

Competence, foresight and knowledge about these building materials are the essential basis for successful journalistic work in this editorial office. Beyond that, however, it also takes passion in action, passion in thought and passion in achieving the best possible product to provide you with important industry information over a long period of time. Without passion, we cannot be good. ZKG has that passion.

Cement, lime, gypsum are important building materials without which the years of growth in the construction industry would not have been possible. Thus, also for the future, ZKG has an important social role in questions of Carbon Capture and Storage or in questions of CO2 reduction, to name only two of the major topics.

You may remain curious! Please look forward to an interesting read with this issue. We look forward to working with you in the coming years.
