Locations in Austria
Mining activities are operated at two locations in Austria, Wietersdorf and Peggau. The raw materials mined in Wietersdorf are processed exclusively in the cement production facility on site.
In Peggau, the raw stone which is mined is treated and sold. On the one hand, it is used by w&p Kalk to produce burnt lime and other carbonate products. On the other hand, there is an external dry mortar production facility at the location that uses the raw material. Additionally, in Peggau we produce aggregates for concrete production.
