Popovac, April 5, 2021 – The company CRH in Serbia, based in Popovac, changed its name and logo. The new name is Moravacem, and it will be officially valid from April 5.
With a new name and brand, the company remains a member of CRH Group, the leading building material business in the world.
Choosing the name Moravacem speaks of our respect for domestic values, laws, business ethics, but also educated, professional and diligent people from Serbia.
We are proud of our roots and the history of the Popovac cement plant for more than 100 years. We value our past and accept it as a solid foundation for building a great future.
On the other hand, CRH is the name of our parent company, headquartered in Ireland. We will take the opportunity to be part of a very successful global family to share our knowledge, innovations, experiences and good practices with it.
By changing the company name and logo, we do not change our top priorities: providing exceptional products and services to our customers, providing great career opportunities for our people, providing the highest standards of responsible health, safety and environmental protection, and making a positive contribution to our local communities.
Also, changing the name and logo of the company does not change our cooperation with key partners, as well as the business that continues to take place on a regular basis.
