Buzzi Unicem is included in the Register of Historical Italian Companies

Buzzi Unicem has been included in the Register of Historical Italian Companies, a recognition instituted by the Union of the Italian Chambers of Commerce and dedicated to all companies who have contributed to Italy’s economy and development for at least 100 years.
Buzzi Unicem was invited to take part in the initiative by the Chamber of Commerce of Alessandria, on the basis of having combined innovation and tradition over the decades and having built an international corporate entity, whilst maintaining a strong sense of belonging to its country of origin.
The Register counts 1,300 ultra-centenarian companies to date, but the hope is that the list will continue to grow over time, enriching Italian entrepreneurial heritage, as well as the historical perspective.

Franco Buzzi, our Vice Chairman, has passed away

With deep sadness and sorrow we announce that Franco Buzzi, our Vice Chairman, family member and friend passed away tonight. Born in 1935, he has been director of Buzzi Unicem SpA since its beginning in 1999. Previously, starting from the '70s, he has held the Chief Executive role of Buzzi Cementi SpA.
Franco Buzzi excelled at business administration and finance, but in reality he had a much vaster and deeper knowledge of the industry in which was born and raised. Together with the other representatives of the third family generation, he was a main architect of the stunning development our company experienced in the last 15 years, guiding it through the evolution from closely held to listed status and the further international expansion, always with a very clear strategic view. Franco's human qualities were even more marked than the professional ones: sensibility, humor, courage, morality, just to name a few. We are going to miss him dearly.

FIBRICON® - the multi fiber reinforced concrete

e power of an idea lies often in its simplicity. That certainly applies to FIBRICON® Winbeton, the innovative concrete concept of Dyckerhoff Basal (Netherlands). FIBRICON® is a ready-mix, certified fiber-reinforced concrete product, produced under controlled conditions. For each application, FIBRICON® adjusts the concrete design to the specific properties of the fibers selected, thus, realizing a significant gain in the properties of the hardened concrete. FIBRICON® can replace or supplement traditional steel reinforcement in many cases. Furthermore, FIBRICON® Winbeton provides builders with all available means of controlling the entire production process. This delivers constructional certainty, and offers unexpected creative possibilities. For high load-bearing floors, walls, roads made of pre-fabricated concrete products and in numerous new applications, multi-fibre-reinforced concrete is now a guarantee of success.
