Our company history dates back more than 160 years when Léon Collinet succeeded in bringing together several independent lime quarries in 1860 to become a major Belgium lime company. A lot has changed for Carmeuse along the way. We have expanded our global footprint, developed new offerings to support new and existing markets, and we have had to adapt to technological advances. However, one thing has been constant over this time, our commitment to our customers, our communities, and our people.
Carmeuse is dedicated to setting the standard as the leader of our industry. We want to be the organization others reference, the company known for the care and respect we show for our people, our customers and the environment in which we live and upon which we all depend. Carmeuse has built its success and its growth upon a mission, a vision and a set of values that are fundamental to how we conduct business in the countries in which we operate.
