We seek sustainable growth and continued competitiveness through solutions and initiatives that generate a positive impact for the company and society.

Our story began in 1933, in the interior of São Paulo. During almost a century, we have expanded our businesses and markets and crossed borders, and today we are one of the largest companies in the sector in the world. We are present in 11 countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil and Uruguay (South America); Canada and the United States (North America); Luxembourg and Spain (Europe); Turkey (Europe/Asia); Morocco and Tunisia (Africa).

Our building materials portfolio includes not only cement but also concrete, mortars and aggregates. We also operate in the areas of aglime, waste management and co-processing. We are a company made up of people who do, believe and build—always together and with excellence, to go further and further. We continuously nurture our ability to win and grow, delivering sustainable results with great pride.

For us at Votorantim Cimentos, the results we achieve are as important as how we work to achieve them. Our VC Way is part of our DNA and the essence of who we are. It includes the principles that guide our everyday behaviors and help us build an even more promising future. Our Way of Being is ethical and respectful; Our Way of Working is together with excellence; and Our Way of Thriving is with courage to transform.


Permanence is at the heart of what we do – and this is true for both our products and our relationships.
We are committed to building long-term partnerships with customers, suppliers, employees and with the communities where we operate.​
Our history began in Brazil in 1933, with a cement factory in the state of São Paulo.
Since then, we have built more factories, expanded our operations, won over new markets and today we are among the biggest companies in the building materials sector worldwide.​
