Secil Group in the world


Secil Group is present in the Portuguese market with the production and sale of cement and various construction materials, namely concrete through Secil Betão, aggregates through Secil Agregados, and mortars through SecilTek.


With a production capacity in Portugal of around 4 million tonnes of cement per year, Secil, through its Secil-Outão, Maceira-Liz and Cibra-Pataias factories, provides more than 35% of the country's cement needs. 


With numerous warehouses and a wide variety of supply, handling and control options in material loading operations, Secil also prioritises sea transport from Setúbal, which has become a fundamental part of the export of cement and clinker to over 30 countries.

By considering internationalisation as a strategic vector for the sustained growth of the activity in geographically diversified markets, Secil Group acquired, in 2017, a set of assets in Spain.


By investing in a cement terminal in Vigo, two quarries and 13 ready-mix concrete plants in the Spanish regions of Asturias and Galicia, Secil intends to consolidate its presence at an Iberian level. Thus, Secil Group is now present in the Iberian Peninsula with all its products.

The Netherlands

In its strategy of diversifying to complementary markets to increase its volume of exports to Northern Europe, Secil Group invested in a maritime terminal located in the Port of Terneuzen, in southern Netherlands, close to the border with Belgium.


This equipment, with a storage capacity of 25 thousand tonnes and directly supplied by ships of 6 thousand tonnes, from the quay of the Secil Outão factory, in Portugal, enables customers in the Netherlands, Belgium and Northern France to be reached more easily.
