Irish Cement has manufactured cement in Ireland for eighty years.

Since commencing operations at Drogheda and Limerick in 1938, the company has continually invested in enhancing the quality and capacity of production to meet the demand of home and export markets.

Irish Cement's plants at Castlemungret, Co. Limerick and at Platin, Co. Meath are well situated near large deposits of the raw materials used in cement manufacture. Production uses the most advanced, energy-efficient dry methods to create a range of high quality cements, to the highest Irish and International standards and to client specifications where required.

Our focus on sustainable development has been acknowledged through independent, 3rd party certification.  In 2011 Irish Cement became the first company in the Republic of Ireland to attain accreditation to the BES 6001 sustainability standard for our Eco-efficient CEM II products and subsequently became the first company to achieve an 'excellent' rating.

In addition to this we are progressing our program in Platin to substitute a proportion of the fossil fuels used in clinker production with locally available solid recoverable fuel. This waste derived fuel would otherwise be sent to landfill in Ireland.

Dedicated marketing and after-sales advisory teams ensure technical support for customers in Ireland and internationally.

The company has a current installed capacity of approximately 3.5 million tonnes and holds ISO 9001 Quality Systems Certification from NSAI and Product Certification from NSAI and BSI. The company's cement products are CE marked under the EU Construction Products Directive.

The company complies rigorously with all relevant environmental legislation and best industry practice at its two plants. Both have IPC licenses granted by the Environmental Protection Agency.

Top priority is given to the health and safety of employees and Irish Cement has a strong commitment to being 'good neighbours' in the plants' local communities.

Irish Cement is a major company within the CRH Group - one of the world's leading building materials groups.
