Hoffmann Green Cement Technologies (ISIN: FR0013451044, Ticker: ALHGR) (“Hoffmann Green Cement” or the “Company”), an industrial player committed to decarbonizing the construction sector that designs and distributes innovative clinker-free cement, announces that it has signed its first partnership agreement in the United Kingdom with Cemblend, a supplier of customised cement powder mixes. From the second half of 2022, Hoffmann Green will supply Cemblend with its H-IONA, H-UKR and H-EVA clinker-free decarbonated cements for distribution to its customers in the UK and Ireland. This exclusive distribution agreement with volume commitments initially runs until the end of 2023 and is a first step towards the signature of a licensing agreement which could see Cemblend build and operate a production unit similar to Hoffmann Green’s second production site (H2), and then produce and market Hoffmann cements in the UK
Julien Blanchard and David Hoffmann, co-founders of Hoffmann Green Cement Technologies, said: “We are pursuing the milestones of our international development with the signing of this structuring partnership in a strategic market in Europe. This first distribution contract in the UK is further proof of the attractiveness of our low-carbon solutions outside our borders. It is a first step in our cooperation process with Cemblend to build eco-responsible buildings across the Channel.”
Thomas ATKINSON, International Development Director of Hoffmann Green Cement Technologies, states: “We are delighted to have signed this distribution contract with Cemblend, a disruptive player in the construction industry, which will be able to decarbonise the construction sector in England thanks to Hoffmann Green technologies. We receive a lot of international requests and we are proud to be able to export our products and thus promote our responsible vision of the construction sector abroad.”
Matthew CUNNINGHAM and Simon BOULTER, Directors at Cemblend, add: “The Hoffmann Green technologies enable us to think outside the box and beyond the traditional boundaries of construction. Hoffmann Green cements are highly decarbonised and offer high technical performance, allowing us to respond to the strong demand for eco-responsible materials in our region.”
