Holcim acquires Quimexur, expanding roofing and waterproofing in Latin America

  • Leading producer of liquid membranes for roofing and waterproofing applications in Argentina
  • Accelerates Holcim’s growth in Solutions & Products to reach 30% of Group net sales by 2025

Holcim acquires Quimexur, a leading producer of liquid membranes for roofing and waterproofing applications in Argentina. This follows the rollout of the GacoFlex TechoProtec line of products in Latin America, after the acquisition of Firestone Building Products in 2021. TechoProtec, a premium waterproofing and thermal isolation roofing system, advances Holcim’s ambition to become a leader in roofing and waterproofing systems in Latin America.

Oliver Osswald, Region Head Latin America: “With Quimexur we are moving quickly on our ambition to expand our position in roofing and waterproofing across Latin America. I warmly welcome all 120 of Quimexur’s employees into the Holcim family and look forward to investing in this business’ next era of growth together.”

With this acquisition Holcim is advancing its "Strategy 2025 - Accelerating Green Growth", aiming to expand its Solutions & Products business to 30% of Group net sales by 2025, entering the most attractive segments of construction, from roofing systems to insulation and renovation.
