India/Ireland: CRH has decided to bid on the 11Mt/yr of cement assets up for sale by Lafarge India, according to local media. This follows CRH's acquisition of US$7bn of assets from Lafarge and Holcim in 2015 that were available as a result of their merger.

CRH is already present in India via its 50% stake in My Home Industries (MHI), which has 4.8Mt/yr of cement production capacity. In 2013, MHI acquired Sree Jayajothi Cements, which has 3.2Mt/yr of production capacity in the south of India.
