Our search for quality and guaranteed supplies means we have a constant need to find our own raw materials so that we can meet our customers’ needs.
As a result of this demand our production processes incorporated the first ever regenerative Maerz kiln; that was back in 1973. Over the last 40 years Calcinor has developed into a business group entering new markets through organic growth and through the acquisition of strategic companies at national and international level.

First high purity limestone quarry in Altzo.
Industrial evolution with the installation of three regenerative lime kilns.
Setting up of two new regenerative kilns in Andalusia.

Expansion continues in Madrid and Levante (Spain) with new plants and quarries.
Development of aggregates and concrete market wherever mineral resources were available.

Internationalisation starts in Slovakia and Hungary.
Entry into asphalt activity with the Campezo company, this activity being complemented with civil works and services.

Acquisition up to a 50% of the French lime distributor Eurocho.
The company strategy is based on the diversification of markets and products, typical of an entrepreneurial mind-set, and one that guarantees sustained growth over time. Our differentiation from competitors – as in previous eras – is still based on a good-understanding and collaboration with our customers, the use of the best available techniques, flexibility in production, a wide range of products and a shareholder vision that guarantees a long-term existence.
