For a better future
The Lhoist Group develops high quality solutions from the finest natural mineral resources. The carbonates, lime, dolime and speciality products bring essential functionalities to our customers' processes. Each manufacturing step is long-term oriented towards a sustainable methodology, from the first deposit exploration until the restoration of our quarries.
Over the course of the last century, the Lhoist Group, which began in Belgium and then expanded into France, has progressively acquired genuine international status.
Our Group's visibility has risen markedly over the last decades. Most of our Group's international growth has occurred in Europe and America.
As industrialists, we devote all our talents and efforts to ensuring continued expansion, guided by a sustained research and investment policy, and strong technological progress.
Today, our companies total more than 5,500 people, all motivated by the desire to satisfy the increasingly varied demands of our customers, who are all confident of our mutual success. Industrial globalisation means that our customers are becoming more international. It also means that they require their suppliers to be increasingly creative, efficient and dynamic.
Our challenge is to remain the best in the eyes of our customers and to prolong experience that dates back over a century.
Lime and lime-based products are used in a wide variety of traditional and emerging applications because of their chemical and physical properties. Each of our customers is unique, which is why they will all find a range of products and services suited to their specific needs.
