Our company history dates back more than 160 years when Léon Collinet succeeded in bringing together several independent lime quarries in 1860 to become a major Belgium lime company. A lot has changed for Carmeuse along the way. We have expanded our global footprint, developed new offerings to support new and existing markets, and we have had to adapt to technological advances. However, one thing has been constant over this time, our commitment to our customers, our communities, and our people.
