Holcim has closed the acquisition of the Utelite Corporation in Coalville, Utah/US, a leading producer of lightweight aggregates. Utelite will join Holcim’s Mountain Region, alongside operations in the Denver, Phoenix and Las Vegas metro areas. Founded in 1962, Utelite’s more than 40 employees serve customers across the western United States and Western Canada. The operation has more than 60 years of proven and probable reserves.
Jan Jenisch, CEO: “We are pleased to welcome the employees of Utelite and Polcalc and look forward to their experi-ence and capabilities. These two bolt-on acquisitions strengthen our presence in two important growth markets while contributing to Holcim’s overall strategy to expand our range of low-carbon products and solutions.”
