CertainTeed(R) Brand Now Includes North America's Most Comprehensive Line of Interior and Exterior Building Products

CertainTeed Corporation is pleased to announce the addition of gypsum wall board and ceiling tiles to its CertainTeed(R)-branded line of interior and exterior building products.

In December 2005, CertainTeed's parent company, Saint-Gobain, the world's largest building products manufacturer, acquired BPB PLC of the United Kingdom, the world's largest gypsum manufacturer and the third largest U.S. manufacturer of suspended ceilings.

Effective today, BPB's North American gypsum wallboard and ceiling businesses join the rich heritage and legacy of the 103-year old CertainTeed brand as CertainTeed Gypsum and CertainTeed Ceilings. In addition, Saint- Gobain's well-known Ecophon(R) and Decoustics ceilings product brands will become part of the CertainTeed Ceilings line.

"This is a watershed event for our company," says Peter Dachowski, President and CEO of CertainTeed Corporation. "With the exception of our insulation business, historically, the CertainTeed brand has been known primarily for products used on residential, exterior applications. The addition of Ceilings and Gypsum to our brand family now gives us formidable strength for interior and commercial applications as well. The result is the most comprehensive line of building products in North America under one of the industry's most respected brand names -- CertainTeed."

The CertainTeed-branded line of building products now includes the following categories: ceilings, walls, residential and commercial roofing; vinyl, polymer and fiber cement siding and millwork; vinyl windows and patio doors; residential, commercial and mechanical insulation; fence, railing, deck; foundations; pipe and access covers.
