Nesher Israel Cement Enterprises

Nesher Israel Cement Enterprises is Israel’s leading cement producer and constitutes the cornerstone in the development of the construction and infrastructure sectors in the country. It supplies most of Israel’s cement needs as well as those of the Palestinian Authority in Judea and Samaria. The company was founded in 1925 and thus realized the vision espoused by Benjamin Ze’ev Herzl in his book “Alteneuland”: “The plan for building a homeland for the Jewish people must take into consideration the founding of a Hebrew cement factory as well”. The company today constitutes a prominent force in Israeli industry with a history that is interwoven with that of the State of Israel.
