It all began millions of years ago. In some cases chalk was formed from the deposition of micro-organisms extracting calcium carbonate from sea water close to the surface. In other cases corals formed on the beds of shallow seas. Subsequent compression then consolidated the deposits to varying degrees; in geologically active regions high-grade marbles have formed.
A feature common to all deposits in the AALBORG WHITE
production process is the lack of contamination by sands and clays which might have been present had the deposits not been a long way from large land masses. This has resulted in very pure limestone ideally suited to the production of white cement. Added to local supplies of high-purity sands and kaolin, advanced technology, a dedicated and skilled workforce, and over 100 years of experience in producing Portland cement, it is easy to understand why AALBORG WHITE
cement deserves its world-wide reputation for consistency and unsurpassed quality.
Today, the AALBORG WHITE
brand enjoys a strong international position and is exported to more than 70 countries across the globe.
