In 2008, within a privatization program promoted by the local government, aimed at opening the economy to foreign investors, Buzzi Unicem acquired a 35% stake in the share capital of two companies, which respectively own the cement plants of Hadjar Soud (located about 30 km from Annaba) and Sour El Ghozlane (located about 130 km South of Algiers).
The production units in which Buzzi Unicem invested have an overall production capacity of more than 2 million tons/year of cement, can boast a large availability of raw materials, adequate manufacturing equipment and a good operating profitability.
Currently in Algeria 699 people are employed.
