By |  April 17, 2015

Holcim and Lafarge announced details on the assets they wish to divest in the United States as a part of their planned merger to form LafargeHolcim.

According to Lafarge, the companies hope to sell Lafarge’s Davenport cement plant and seven terminals along the Mississippi River to Summit Materials. They also plan to sell three Holcim terminals in Michigan and Illinois; Holcim’s Skyway 600kt slag grinding station in Illinois; Holcim’s Camden 700kt slag grinding station in New Jersey; and a terminal in Massachusetts.

The proposed divestments have been negotiated with the staff of the Federal Trade Commission, and are still subject to review and approval by the Commission, says Lafarge.

The closing of the merger is expected to take place July 2015. The new LafargeHolcim company would be operating in 90 countries.
