The stormy weather did not scare the people in Lappeenranta in Finland last Saturday when Nordkalk together with the other companies - Astepa, Finnsementti and Suomen Karbonaatti -  in the Ihalainen industrial area offered tours to the industrial area. About 500 people used the opportunity and came to learn why limestone is so essential.
