Building Products of Canada complements CertainTeed Canada’s existing operations by offering roofing materials like residential shingles and wood fiber insulation panels. The acquisition, first announced in June, was valued at nearly $1 billion.
Saint-Gobain announced plans to invest $235 million in expanding its CertainTeed manufacturing facility in Palatka, Fla., doubling production capacity and installing high-efficiency equipment, further reducing its carbon footprint.
A deal announced by France’s Saint-Gobain to acquire privately-owned Building Products of Canada Corp. on June 12 in a nearly $1 billion cash acquisition solidifies the concern’s dominance within the Canadian construction product manufacturing sector.
