Saint-Gobain has operated on the Swiss market with a range of successful brands since 1937 – all these brands in the building distribution, construction products and glass sectors are among the local market leaders. Its roughly 2,000 employees generate sales of just over a billion Swiss francs at more than 40 sites. Innovative, state-of-the-art Swiss quality is developed and produced and investments are made in the further development of products and services at ten manufacturing sites.
“International yet regional: with Saint-Gobain Switzerland, we are close to the market and our customers, but we also benefit from our parent company’s strong competitive position as a global player and can take advantage of global synergies.”
