France: Vicat’s cement sales have grown by 4.3%, at constant scope and exchange rates, to Euro932m in the first nine months of 2017. Its cement sales volumes rose by 1.6% year-on-year to 16.9Mt from 16.6Mt. Overall, the construction materials company’s sales increased by 2.9% to Euro1.92bn from Euro1.87bn.

“In the first nine months of the year our sales grew at a healthy pace. This was achieved through further growth in the US, despite tough weather conditions in the South east, and a gradual improvement in the French, Indian and Kazakh markets. After very unfavourable weather conditions in the first half, our business in Turkey posted brisk growth again in the third quarter. Lastly, our sales were almost stable in the West Africa and Middle East region,” said group chairman and chief executive officer (CEO) Guy Sidos.
