  • Over the last ten years, Saint-Gobain has restructured by divesting certain activities (such as paper and wood) and acquiring others (such as distribution) so that it now concentrates on 5 core sectors: Flat Glass, Building Distribution, Packaging, High Performance Materials and Construction Products. The Group’s business strategy is to be No 1 or 2 in all of its activities. The Group’s strategy is straightforward – to be the number one or number two in each of sectors.
