Yes, and the finance department that ran their pension scheme used to be as thick as pigshit. They were a nightmare. I've never been happier to lose a multi-million-pound scheme.

Why don't you use some of your high powered biz contacts? Even better, what about those oft-stated uber-mensch on that incredibly nerdy civ site compared with us know nothing dick brains.

What could we possibly know?

Cement companies may be international but cement markets tend to be local.

i.e., CEMEX for example.........

indeed, cement is always produced locally to serve local markets, too expensive to move around, so Lafarge, like Cemex has been in the forefront of the "internationalisation" of the French (or Mexican) economy (like Air Liquide, same logic for domestic gaz).
