Saint-Gobain has completed the sale of K par K to two of its managers. The
business specializes mainly in the door-to-door sale of customized woodwork and
windows on the French market.
This activity, unique within Saint-Gobain, had limited synergies with the rest
of the group.
K par K generated a turnover of around EUR130 million in 2018 and employs
nearly 1,000 people.
This transaction marks the continuation of Saint-Gobain's portfolio
optimization strategy within the framework of the new organization, beyond the
objective of more than EUR3 billion in sales already reached, to grow our
growth and profitability profile. Divestments completed or signed as of today
represent over EUR3.1 billion in sales.
Saint-Gobain designs, manufactures and distributes materials and solutions
which are key ingredients in the wellbeing of each of us and the future of all.
They can be found everywhere in our living places and our daily life: in
buildings, transportation, infrastructure and in many industrial applications.
They provide comfort, performance and safety while addressing the challenges of
sustainable construction, resource efficiency and climate change.
EUR41.8 billion in sales in 2018
Operations in 68 countries
More than 180,000 employees
