Independent Cement and Lime secures Adbri cement distribution contract extension


Australia: Adbri has extended Independent Cement and Lime (ICL)’s contract to exclusively distribute its products to the New South Wales and Victoria markets. ICL is a 50% subsidiary of Adbri. Volumes under the renewed contract will be similar to those during 2022, while prices will reflect market conditions. Adbri said that ICL distributes a ‘substantial’ proportion of the cement produced at its Birkenhead cement plant in South Australia.

Adbri’s interim chief executive officer Mark Irwin said “Independent Cement and Lime is Victoria’s pre-eminent cementitious products distributor and is an important part of Adbri’s supply chain across Victoria and New South Wales. We are pleased to extend our distribution arrangement with ICL through to the end of 2023. We look forward to the commissioning in 2023 of the Melbourne cement facility’s new 45,000t silo at Port Melbourne, which will enhance Independent Cement and Lime’s ability to service the Victorian market.”

Adbri had previously considered buying Barro Group’s cement assets, which included the remaining 50% stake in Independent Cement and Lime, in 2018.
