SAINT-GOBAIN to Invest more tHAN $400 Million to expand production capacities in the United states

 

 

Saint-Gobain has decided to invest more than $400 million over the next four years to expand roofing, insulation and gypsum production capacities at four key manufacturing locations in the Southeastern United States and in California.

 

These new capacities will apply the best available techniques in terms of industrial performance, safety and respect for the environment. The combined investments will reduce waste by more than 50% and CO2 emissions by more than 20% compared to existing manufacturing technology.

 

These investments are fully in line with the new strategic plan "Grow & Impact" and aim at both strengthening the Group's leadership in North America and accelerating its growth in the region by enriching its comprehensive range of solutions for light and sustainable construction, with 45% of all construction products spend in North America in light construction.
