CMP - Cimentos de Maceira e Pataias, SA

Installed in the valley that separates the limestone formations of the Serra da Arrábida from the clay-limestone formations that extend to Setúbal, Fábrica da Rasca had the necessary raw materials and easy access by land and sea. Decisive factors that, at the beginning of the century, a small group of Belgian and Portuguese engineers started to build a cement factory in that place.
In 1994 Secil became a wholly private company and the acquisition of the company CMP took place, becoming the owner of the cement factories Maceira-Liz and Cibra-Pataias.
