Compagnie de Saint-Gobain in Packaging

July 2011

Saint-Gobain is the number two producer of glass globally behind O-I. However, packaging for this company is a non-core activity. It has stated its intention to sell the division in 2008, but has since not found a buyer. Whether it still intends to sell was not known at the time of this report, but with the company’s core activities focused on the cyclical and under-performing construction sector, packaging has been among its most robust divisions.
