A decentralized Group where everyone takes responsibility

Decentralization is a core element in our multi-local organization. The Group is made up of small units in which the performance of each employee matters.


For example, a Lafarge cement plant is an industrial asset worth upwards of $250 million. Thanks to automated manufacturing and control processes, it can be operated by roughly 100 people. These assets are run by close-knit teams, allowing you to rapidly take on additional responsibilities and propose new initiatives that can quickly be put into practice.
