Italcementi to fight Euro84m antitrust fine

Print this page

Italy: Italcementi, part of Germany’s HeidelbergCement, has said that charges brought by Italy's antitrust authority are unfounded and it would appeal against the sanction at the Lazio court. Italcementi, along with other leading cement producers, is accused by the regulator of allegedly breaching competition rules for the period from June 2011 to January 2016.

In particular, Italcementi has said that it believes that the commercial decisions taken by the previous management to propose nominal price increases to its customers were dictated by autonomous, solid and logical business motives.

Italcementi also considers that the Euro84m fine, one of the highest ever imposed by the authority, is completely disproportionate to the turnover generated by the company in Italy.
