Duna-Dráva Cement Kft. is a joint venture owned by two Germany based companies: HeidelbergCement AG and SCHWENK Zement KG - both of them operate in building materials industry.
HeidelbergCement AG is one of the world’s largest building materials companies. With the takeover of the Italian cement producer Italcementi, HeidelbergCement became the number 1 in aggregates production, number 2 in cement, and number 3 in ready-mixed concrete. Both companies complement each other perfectly: on the one hand due to major similarities in product areas and organisation structures, and on the other hand due to their different geographical footprints without major overlaps. In the significantly expanded HeidelbergCement Group, around 60,000 employees work at more than 3,000 production sites in around 60 countries on five continents.
SCHWENK Zement KG is a family-owned company founded in 1847. Beside cement production their activity and services cover further sectors of the building materials industry. The company operates several cement plants in Germany and has ready-mixed concrete business interests as well. SCHWENK Zement KG also has interests in Ohorongo Cement, which is Namibia’s only cement-producing company.
