The arrival of officials from the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) at the premises of an Irish Cement facility in Co Meath last week comes at a sensitive time for its parent group, CRH.
Valued at €20bn, it is the most valuable Irish company. The eyes of the building materials world are on it as completes a potentially transformative €6bn acquisition.
CRH responded to publicity around the incident by saying it fully facilitated the inspection; it operates to the highest standards and has no issue in relation to competitive practices.
