Production at the Hranice cement-works began in April 1954. The daily throughput capacity of clinker is 3,000 tonnes, from which currently are milled portland cement, portland slag cement and a wide variety of mortar binders.
Between 1987 and 1992 the company underwent thorough modernization. Thus by the 1990s the Hranice plant ranked among the most state-of-the-art cement-works in Europe. Clinker is produced today using a far more effective method. In addition to economic and qualitative improvements, the modernization also incorporated the ecological dimension of production. Emissions were substantially reduced thanks to de-dusting equipment worth 150 million CZK installed during the modernization process. The deployment of three-stage firing of clinker with pre-calcination has considerably reduced the emission of nitrogen dioxide and sulphur compounds.
Cement Hranice company has been since 1995 holder of the Quality Managment Certificate in accordance with the norms DIN EN ISO 9002; since 2003 holder of management system certificates in accordance with ČSN EN ISO 9001:2000 and ČSN EN ISO 14 001:1996, and in 2007 was awarded the Management Certificate OHSAS 18 001: 1999.
