About Carmeuse Overseas
Carmeuse Overseas (CMO) is a business division of the Carmeuse Group, a world reference in lime. It has been launched in 2007 to capitalize on the experience developed in lime trading & shipping by Carmeuse Trading & Services, founded in 1989 in Switzerland, and in operating since 1994 a remote plant in Ghana, Carmeuse Lime Products (CLP), delivering mainly to the surrounding mine sites.
Based on the successful performance of these two companies, CMO gradually extended its reach by adding to its network several strategically located storage places and local offices in West Africa, southern Africa and in South East Asia and Pacific.
CMO now trades lime products worldwide and other chemicals, mainly to the mining industry, the water treatment, agriculture and the construction industry. Before the end of 2021, CMO is operating, besides the historic CLP in Ghana, three state of the art lime plants in Africa (Zambia, Sénégal and Tunisia).
All these developments are following CMO’s purpose:
