The 35% stake that we have decided to take in the capital of the new entity demonstrates that we want to take part in its future success by maintaining a link with this activity,” said Bruno Lafont, chief executive officer of Lafarge. “We are very pleased to be shareholders alongside PAI, who offered the best solution for this activity and its employees.”
