Cembrit Holding A/S: At the crossroads: Teaching case

Publikation: AndetAndet bidragForskning


Cembrit was named after the Cimbri, a nomadic tribe that had broken from Northern Jutland and fought its way through Europe in a conquest. The case is a fascinating story of how Cembrit ‘fought’ its way from Denmark through Europe and beyond to become one of the leading distributors and manufacturers of fibre-cement products in Europe by 2008. It narrates how Cembrit, pursing its international growth ambition, went through a period of restructuring, acquisitions and consolidation, acquiring production, sales, and distribution fibre-cement companies throughout Europe, and eventually closing down its own production in Denmark.
