June 08,2016

Bucharest, June 8th: Holcim Romania expends its retail offer, coming in the market with a range of bagged cement for covering all types of construction elements.

The products comprising the new range of bagged cement were designed to address the dynamics of the construction market, described by more specific needs and requirements which occur throughout the construction or renovation process of a building, as well as to meet the increasingly stringent execution terms: aesthetics, shorter time, lower costs, higher strength and durability. The construction industry in Romania has been recently registering a positive evolution, particularly in the residential and non-residential segments, a development also resonating on the cement market.  

The new range of Holcim products delivered in bags comprises: Structo Plus ® 40 kg, Structo Plus ® 20 kg, Structo ® 40kg, Extra Dur 52 40 kg, Tenco ® 40 kg.

With the new range of Holcim products in bags, you can start building a house from scratch. The Holcim cement bags provide builders and beneficiaries with support, as well as reliability throughout the entire construction process, as the new products are the result of comprehensive studies initiated by Holcim expert teams and conducted within the past two years. The new cement products help builders execute whole range of construction elements.

 “Our focus on customers and desire to build sustainable partnerships prompts us into constantly innovating. We want to see our solutions put in place, in more resistant, durable and efficient buildings. Thus, we offer our customers more than products: we give them the trust that they can rely on a strong partner, on long term. The new range of cement bags is the best proof of how Holcim Romania understands and contributes for the development of the construction sector, by implementing and offering innovation and sustainability in the market through tailored and cost-effective solutions”, declared Sofiane Benmaghnia, CEO Holcim Romania.

“The urgent and increasingly diverse demands of the final beneficiaries are part of our daily challenges. In the last years we developed many market studies, analysis and specific tests in our laboratories and we believe that we made the right decisions given the current market conditions. The construction sector is going through a consolidation process, in which both constructors and end-users pay attention more on the quality. Constructors seek experts for business efficiency and performant construction materials that can become their support in the team. And the Holcim cement bags provide all these warranties and the support necessary to ensure the success of our customers’ projects”, added Bogdan Dobre, Commercial Director Holcim Romania.
