Carmeuse was established over 150 years ago in Belgium, home today to its main offices. The Group boasts a strong presence on four continents, with sites or production facilities currently located throughout Europe, North & South America, Overseas, and in the Middle East and Asia. It takes special pride in its 'family' ethos and values, which positively guide the way the company does business in each country or region where it operates.
Firmly established in North America since 1992, Carmeuse has expanded through a series of acquisitions to include 28 plants that supply and serve most of the USA and Eastern Canada with lime and limestone. The company employs more than 2,000 people and is supported by a corporate office in Pittsburgh, PA. Visit website.
Carmeuse can trace its roots back to 1860, starting out as a small family-owned business in Belgium. Still focused on lime and limestone products, the company expanded significantly in the early 1980s in Western Europe and moved into Central and Eastern Europe in the early 21st century. Today it operates sites and plants in 15 countries across the continent, including Turkey. Visit website.
Carmeuse has extensive experience in logistics and exports, enabling the supply of lime products on a year-round basis to every corner of the globe where high quality limestone cannot be naturally found. Here the company operates its own plants or works closely with others in the same sector. Visit website
