Anniversary book: Saint-Gobain 1665-2015 – The History of the Future

This original, richly illustrated book presents a thematic and chronological view of Saint-Gobain s 350-year history : people from the past and present; the places; the expertise; the major achievements in multiple, sometimes surprising sectors; the principle dates; and a lexicon.

They provide keys to understanding the specific spirit and true nature of a complex global Group.

How has this Group been able to successfully work uninterruptedly for 350 years, spanning centuries, political, technical and social revolutions, and conflicts, without abandoning its convictions, maintaining its original activity while constantly diversifying and yet remain coherent?

Marie de Laubier presents an overview of Saint-Gobain s history, complete with the latest news, demonstrating the strong connections linking the past and present, which transcend time and borders. Marie de Laubier, a paleographist, archivist and library curator, is head of the Saint-Gobain archives and heritage.
