Two growth industries

With operations in more than 100 countries, FLSmidth is a truly global company. The geographical footprint reflects our diversified customer base, composed primarily of global and regional cement and mining companies that invest in new capacity or in expanding, upgrading, maintaining and servicing existing production capacity.


Cement and minerals are vital for economic, social and technological development. Urbanisation and industrialisation drive the need for infrastructure and improved standards of living. This creates an increasing global demand for cement and for minerals such as copper and gold. However, greater scarcity of resources such as energy, water and raw materials is leading to more complex and costly operations, which challenges the performance of mining and cement companies. This calls for innovation and high-end technical solutions, which is where FLSmidth has a leading position and a strong

competitive edge.
