C$880 million acquisition will enhance Saint-Gobain’s position in light and sustainable construction and further strengthen its product portfolio in Canada.

Saint-Gobain has completed the acquisition, announced on April 3, 2024, of The Bailey Group of Companies (Bailey), a leading manufacturer of metal building solutions in Canada. With approximately 690 employees working across twelve manufacturing sites throughout Canada, Bailey will reinforce Saint-Gobain’s commitment to growth in the country, adding more than C$500 million in revenues.

With today’s announcement, Saint-Gobain has successfully completed its third major acquisition in Canada in the last three years. These include the acquisition of Kaycan (2022) a leader in siding and exterior solutions and Building Products of Canada (2023) a major manufacturer of residential roofing shingles and wood fiber insulation panels. All three additions complement CertainTeed Canada’s extensive portfolio of interior building materials, and Bailey will further enrich Saint-Gobain’s full-range offer of interior and exterior solutions.

The Bailey Group of Companies, which will continue to operate under its current brand name, joins the local North American construction business, within the Americas region.

Today’s announcement follows several other recent growth investments announced by Saint-Gobain in Canada:

With over 145 manufacturing locations in Canada and the United States, every current and future member of the company’s team plays a vital role in achieving its sustainability goals. A current list of job openings at all Saint-Gobain locations can be found on the company’s careers website.
