From used machines to turnkey projects.
Intercem has been active in the cement industry for more than 50 years.
It all started with the sale of used machines for the cement industry. These were professionally overhauled and sold worldwide in almost new condition. On 14 April 2003 – 20 years ago – Intercem Engineering GmbH was founded, followed by Intercem Installation GmbH in 2007.
Today, the Intercem Group consists of the system manufacturers Intercem Engineering GmbH, Intercem Installation GmbH, both based in Oelde/Germany, and Intercem Cement AG, in Zug/Switzerland. The production facility is located in Oelde/Germany. The three companies are wholly owned subsidiaries of the Swiss Intercem Holding AG in Zug. The group currently employs around 50 people, mainly engineers and technicians. Long-standing, cooperative relationships and collaboration with engineering offices enable us to temporarily increase our staff to up to 100 people if required.
Thanks to decades of experience and an international network, Intercem in the group constellation offers its customers a comprehensive range of services in cement plant construction from a single source. The available, tailor-made spectrum ranges from individual components to upgrades of existing plants up to complete cement plants. Intercem’s guiding principle is: good organisation and clear agreements guarantee quick success. The company’s concept is geared towards flexibly adapting to the diverse challenges that arise when working in many different countries. With an export quota of approx. 80%, the main sales markets are currently in West Africa, France, Sweden and Germany.
Intercem-Engineering Managing Director Olaf Michelswirth has been travelling in Africa for 25 years. Since then, he has developed a great sympathy for this continent and an understanding of the African mentality. These are indispensable prerequisites if you want to be successful here.
