According to a release from Saint-Gobain, Building Products of Canada complements CertainTeed Canada’s existing operations by offering roofing materials, and will add C$435 million to its leadership position in Canada, where it already has C$1.4 billion in sales. Along with the recent acquisitions of Kaycan and GCP in 2022, this acquisition is a major milestone in establishing Saint-Gobain’s leading position worldwide in light and sustainable construction. Building Products of Canada has 460 employees working at three manufacturing plants across the country (Montreal, Edmonton, Pont-Rouge).
Building Products of Canada joins the CertainTeed building materials business, in the Americas Region.
The closing announcement follows several other North American growth investments announced by Saint-Gobain in recent months, including the opening of its CertainTeed Corners facility in Social Circle, Ga. in April; acquiring the rights to technology from recycling partner Asphaltica in February, which will allow Saint-Gobain to grow its ability to recycle asphalt shingle waste; the announcement of constructing a new roofing manufacturing facility and distribution center in Bryan, Texas, creating approximately 130 new jobs in the area and reaffirming its commitment to serving customers in the southern United States.
Last year, Saint-Gobain announced the acquisitions of both Kaycan and GCP, strengthening its leadership positions in siding and construction chemicals, respectively.
