With over 150 years in business, Carmeuse is a leading producer of high calcium and dolomitic lime, chemical grade limestone and crushed limestone aggregate products that are a vital part of important industries in steel manufacturing, energy, environmental services, and construction.
Carmeuse entered the Slovak market in 2000, when it bought a subsidiary of the former East Slovakian Steelworks (currently US Steel) - Keramika SA Kosice together with shares of Dolomit SA Mala Vieska. Since the beginning of 2001 the separate company Carmeuse Slovakia Ltd. was established based on two plants – Lime plant Košice and Quarry Včeláre.
In 2003 the company KALCIT Ltd with a seat in Slavec, which Carmeuse Group acquired in 2001, has been incorporated to Carmeuse Slovakia Ltd, and by this Lime Plant Slavec and Quarry Gombasek became an integrated part of Carmeuse family.
After the acquisition of the company Trekom Ltd, Carmeuse Slovakia has enlarged by Quarry Trebejov and later after the reorganization of company Dolomit also by Quarry Malá Vieska.
Currently Carmeuse Slovakia Ltd. covers its activities in three plants – Lime plant Košice, Lime plant Slavec and Quarries. Each of them is unique and special, they differ in the used technology and the focus of production, but each of them provides its customers with products and services in line with the mission and values of Carmeuse Group, what results in the fact that despite of difficult competitive environment we are maintaining a leading position on the market.
Slovak plants aim their production to steel, paper industry, construction and chemistry.
High-quality raw material and usage of modern production technologies guarantees the highest quality of manufactured bulk and ground lime and limestone, as well as hydrate. The production process is designed ecologically and is taking into account all the requirements for environmental protection.
Carmeuse Slovakia employs 250 employees, mainly with technical orientation. In the last few years the company focused on increasing the efficiency of both from the technological point of view as well as from a human resources perspective. In our team, we welcome people who are driven and passionate about what they do and who help the company to progress.
