Carmeuse Lime & Stone has a corporate history that dates back almost 150 years. The Carmeuse Group S.A., the Belgium-based parent company, was founded in 1860. The Carmeuse Group has operations in 13 countries, with over 90 production facilities, up to 5,000 employees, and annual production sales of more than 48 million tons of finished products. The Carmeuse Group entered North America in 1992, establishing a corporate office in Pittsburgh, PA and acquiring several lime companies including Beachville Lime Limited, Marblehead Lime, Inc., Pennsylvania Lime, Inc., Ohio Lime, Inc., Millersville Lime, Inc., Detroit Lime, Northern Lime Limited, and Dundas Lime Limited. The additional acquisition of the Pittsburgh-based Dravo Corporation in 1998 helped position Carmeuse as the leading lime supplier in the Eastern U.S. and Canada with 15 plants at that time.
In February 2008, Carmeuse took control of Oglebay Norton, thereby doubling the size of the company and expanding its product range. Now, collectively known as Carmeuse Lime & Stone. The company has 28 plants that supply and serve most of the USA and Eastern Canada with lime and limestone and employs more than 2,000 people.
