Founded in the eve of the independence of Mauritania, the ASML Group was started as a trading company aimed at providing imported goods to the new country. It evolved into several specialized and diversified companies in the late 1970's with the same vision of Mauritanian self sufficiency and openness to the world.

Ciment de Mauritanie, to date the leader in cement production was instrumental in developing the construction industry in Mauritania by providing quality cement milled in Mauritania. With the developments in the mining and extractive industries in the 2000s, the ASML Group has been a uniquely positioned group of companies to serve. Through its unique Engineering Management expertise and applicable QHSE standards, the companies became national and regional innovator with a track record of success.

The ASML group is active with many international extraction industry operators and on important specialized projects including industrial construction, drilling for metals (RC and DC), port operations (lifting, handling...), inland transport and other critical activities.
The Group's success, growing out of the strong results of its subsidiaries in their respective sectors, is the result of applying these values, and the best testament to that success is undoubtedly the ISO 9002:2000 quality certification that the Group's Ciment de Mauritanie subsidiary has received from the Paris office of BVQI (Véritas), the first such certification awarded to a Mauritanian company.
