Austrian Wienerberger Group to build a new brick plant in Estonia

18. May 2005

Wienerberger is continuing its profitable growth course in Estonia

The new production facility represents the a ’real’ growth step for Wienerberger in the Baltic region. The decision to construct a new plant was based on the rising demand for facing bricks in the baltic countries.

Wienerberger now imports roughly 18 percent of bricks sold in the Baltic States from Wienerberger plants in neighboring countries.

The new production facility will nearly double the capacity from the current level of 28 million to 50 million brick units, and not only allow Wienerberger to supply the entire Baltic region but to expand their market position also in Russia through exports to the St. Petersburg area.

Wienerberger will also take further steps to expand its hollow brick activities in the Baltic States. Parallel to the construction of the new plant, production at the existing facility in Aseri will be converted from facing bricks to hollow bricks in order to further develop the still small hollow brick market in Estonia.

The planned investments amount to EUR 16 million.
