“Our company ECOCEM France is currently building a factory in the port of Dunkirk for the production of an additive used in the manufacture of cement. It will be made from steelmaking slag, a by-product to be supplied by our partner ArcelorMittal Lorraine Atlantique. This setup represents an investment of some 47 million Euros over three years, achieving a production capacity of 750,000 tonnes a year in the first phase. It should generate the creation of 37 jobs. ECOCEM France is the French subsidiary of an Irish group and has already set up successfully at Fos-sur-Mer in the Bouches-du-Rhône, using the same model. Our arrival in Dunkirk is the result of ECOCEM’s policy to continue its development. We have been very pleasantly surprised by the welcome given to us in Dunkirk, and have been in contact with many people who have really helped us look for a site for our plant. As soon as the project was confirmed, Dunkerque Promotion announced our arrival and informed the local industrial community of our project. They also included us in their different marketing events, greatly facilitating our integration and helping us to find the service providers we needed. Our head office is in Aix-en-Provence, a long way from Dunkirk, and we find it invaluable to have a reliable, competent agency locally.”
