CRH will continue search for deals

CRH will remain on the hunt for additional acquisitions as it beds down $6.5bn in assets it bought from Lafarge and Holcim, which have merged.

Chief executive Albert Manifold told the FT that it would probably take a year to get to grips with the wide-ranging portfolio it has acquired, which marks the single biggest transaction of CRH's history.

The assets include businesses in 11 countries.
