 Albert Weber, CEO of ISG said: “ISG regularly evaluates and reviews its operational activities to ensure that our long-term strategies and objectives remain on track. After a careful analysis, the Board decided to focus on the core business that Rocla and Technicrete afford the group, and therefore decided to sell Ocon Brick”

Weber continued: “On behalf of the IS Group I would like to thank management and the entire team at Ocon Brick for their dedicated contribution to Ocon’s success during the past five years that they have been part of ISG”.
