David Hatchwell Altaras
Since its founding in Spain in 1971 by Mr Mauricio Hatchwell Toledano, Excem Grupo has evolved with great success, passing from being a Spanish trading company to becoming a diversified international group whose areas of activity include telecommunications, real estate and consulting services to large groups.
Our value creation is based on our extensive knowledge of international business, our flexibility and the establishment of timely alliances in local markets.
Our commitment to large emerging markets like China, has positioned the group to participate in the strong growth we believe these regions will experience in the coming years. Our diversification into added-value services in telecommunications and HLS represents yet another support for our existing businesses.
Our Group seeks to develop opportunities, apply our management skills, experience and resources to provide real results.
For more than 40 years, the Cement Division of Excem has built a solid international network of alliances. Excem is and has been for several decades one of the largest independent cement traders in Southern Europe.
Excem is also founder, promoter and investor of a cement grinding mill in Spain. The Cement Division of Excem closely collaborates with its customers, in order to obtain and offer the most competitive prices with the best products and qualities from a range of suppliers.
