HeidelbergCement confirms receipt of notice from European Commission
HeidelbergCement has been informed by the European Commission about the decision to initiate formal proceedings in respect of possible anti-competitive practices in the markets of cement and related products in some countries of the European Economic Area. The Commission has indicated that HeidelbergCement, as well as seven other companies, will be included in these proceedings.
In its notification, the Commission stated that "The initiation of proceedings does not imply that the commission has conclusive proof of the infringements but merely signifies that the Commission will deal with the case as a matter of priority". HeidelbergCement is cooperating with the European Commission and has given all the information requested by the Commission.
