YUGcement 50th Anniversary Celebrations

Buzzi Unicem celebrated the 50th anniversary of the YUGcement plant on 25 May, with company employees, the management of Dyckerhoff Ukraine, partner companies, YUGcement customers and suppliers, as well as subcontractors and regional representatives from state authorities in attendance.
Andriy Navrotskiy, director of the YUGcement plant, and Sergiy Dudzianiy, country manager Ukraine, warmly welcomed all the guests. The employees and visitors were also welcomed by Paolo Zelano and Gigi Buzzi, representing the group’s management and shareholders.
Pavlo Katschur and Roman Skilski, president and director of the Ukrcement association, highlighted the huge contribution made by YUGcement to the growth of the Ukrainian cement industry.
YUGcement is not only an important business in the Mykolajiw area but also plays a prominent role within the social sphere, providing constant support to the local community, schools, kindergartens, charitable organizations, churches and many other institutions. The company funds numerous projects, including the construction of the Olshanske school, sponsors the kite festivals and supports various voluntary associations.
Appreciation for these programs also came from Alla Worobjowa, a representative from the provincial administration, and Andriy Krotow, deputy mayor of Mykolajiw.

These first 50 years represent an important stage in the history of the cement plant: a period full of events, achievements, experiences and collaborations with skilled people. YUGcement is the result of the union between Italian creativity, German quality and Ukrainian performance.
