Saint-Gobain gains a foothold in Botswana

April 04 2017

Saint-Gobain, through the Mortars Activity (Saint-Gobain Weber), acquired 100% of Buildezee Adhesives Botswana (PTY) Ltd on March 27, 2017, a leading manufacturer of tile adhesives and grouts in Botswana.

 

This acquisition strengthens the Group’s position in Southern Africa, a region that has been experiencing dynamic growth for several years, especially in the construction sector, and boosts its manufacturing capabilities in sub-Saharan Africa where Saint-Gobain is already present in South Africa, Ghana and Tanzania.

 

It also supports Saint-Gobain’s strategy to develop business in this high potential region.
