"Holcim is one of the most important local players in the production of high-performance construction materials. We are delighted to have been able to assist the company with its plan to expand locally through this new acquisition, which contributes to strengthening its position in the construction market. I would like to thank Holcim for their trust and excellent collaboration throughout the transaction", said Ruxandra Bologa, NNDKP Partner, Corporate/M&A and Energy and Natural Resources practices.
