Strong Outlook for Firestone Building Products Through LafargeHolcim Acquisition

It is an exciting time to be a part of Firestone Building Products (FSBP) as it announced its acquisition by LafargeHolcim, a global leader in building solutions with a focus on sustainability.

The transaction has now been completed and LafargeHolcim has big plans for European and Latin American market expansion, leveraging the already strong position held by FSBP since the 1980s.

PermaRoof UK is one of the largest European importers and distributors for Firestone RubberCover and RubberGard EPDM and is looking forward to being a part of these extremely positive plans for strong commercial growth across the flat roofing sector.

Jan Jenisch, LafargeHolcim CEO said: “I warmly welcome the Firestone Building Products team into the LafargeHolcim family. Together, we will lead this iconic company’s next era of growth to become the global leader in flat roofing systems.

“As we expand its leadership in the US to Europe and Latin America, I want the world to know that ‘NOBODY COVERS YOU BETTER’ than Firestone. I am excited about the strong growth prospects, accelerated by the many opportunities from President Biden’s ‘Build Back Better’ plan.

With its leading roofing systems, Firestone Building Products makes us a partner of choice from rooftop to foundation. This truly is a milestone for LafargeHolcim as we become the global leader in innovative and sustainable building solutions.”
