Since 2011, VVM has been part of CRH, an Irish group with a long tradition in the cement and concrete industry and operating worldwide. Grown from the concrete industry, VVM is well aware of the needs of independent concrete producers to provide the most appropriate advice and supply high-quality cement in an optimal price-quality ratio. VVM produces and supplies all classic clinker-based cements from various locations.
VVM has 2 cement grinding plants on Belgian territory. The grinding plant in the Port of Antwerp has been in operation since 2002. The plant in Rieme (Port of Ghent) was built in 2006.
Both grinding plants have large capacity and storage facilities. They are in prime locations with access to the water network with a draught of more than 12.5 metres (Panamax class). Thus, not only inland vessels can be loaded and unloaded, but also ocean-going vessels can dock at the quay. This allows both sites to export cement or supply raw materials worldwide.
