Saint-Gobain gains a foothold in Ghana

Saint-Gobain, through its Industrial Mortars Activity (Saint-Gobain Weber), has created a joint venture in Ghana with local partners.

Saint-Gobain will hold a minority interest in the first instance. Based in Accra (capital of Ghana), this joint venture will manufacture industrial mortars and commercialise them in Ghana.  

This transaction allows Saint-Gobain to gain a foothold in West Africa, a region that has been experiencing a dynamic growth for several years, especially in the construction market. It also strengthens its ability to meet strong local demand in Sub-Saharan Africa where SaintGobain Weber is already present in South Africa. It supports Saint-Gobain Group’s strategy to develop in this high-potential region.
