On 03.08.2015, finalisation of the transaction with Lafarge and Holcim officially made Lafarge Germany part of the CRH Group. In the course of this, the name of all business units previously belonging to Lafarge Germany was changed to Opterra. Specifically, beside Opterra GmbH, these are now Opterra Karsdorf GmbH, Opterra Karsdorf GmbH/Sötenich works, Opterra Wössingen GmbH and Opterra Beton GmbH.

Membership of the CRH Group is shown by the suffix „A CRH Company. Even ­after the name change, Danilo Buscaglia remains CEO of Opterra GmbH.
